2015 sees the 125th anniversary of the creation of Yosemite National
Park. The persuasive writings of John Muir were instrumental in the
legislation passing speedily through Congress and the Park came in to
being on 1 October 1890.
To mark the occasion the John Muir Birthplace Trust and Friends of
John Muir’s Birthplace are delighted to welcome the Andante Chamber
Choir from the Scottish Borders who will perform a number of choral
pieces with an American flavour, including a work specially composed
in honour of Muir. The choir will be supported by four instrumental
guests and there will be readings from Muir’s writings.
