Alliance for New Music Theatre has partnered with Mt Zion - Female Union Band Historic Memorial Park, Inc. for the creation of Voices of Zion, an original immersive music-theatre experience opening as a world premiere this May. They are offering the work to honor Dumbarton United Methodist Church in its 250th anniversary year and Mount Zion United Methodist Church, the area’s oldest African American congregation. Audiences are invited to dig deeper into some of the complex history of African American Georgetown.
Boat rides are available five days a week, offering one-hour guided historical tours along the first mile of the C&O Canal National Historical Park (NHP). Visitors will learn about the fascinating history, technology and culture of the Canal, and the surprising stories of the people who lived, worked and played here over the past two centuries.
