Portstmouth Peace Treaty Centennial Concert Series


The 15-week Portsmouth Peace Treaty Centennial Concert Series, organized by the Portsmouth Men's Chorus and its founder Terrie Harman, allowed a diverse assembly of Seacoast and regional musicians to highlight some of the churches and performance venues that played a role in the 1905 Peace Conference.  Each Sunday afternoon at 3 pm, a different performer or group presented a free concert in a different Seacoast location.


The Portsmouth Men's Chorus, celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2005, assembled an impressive and diverse series of concert programs to allow Seacoast singers and instrumentalists to celebrate the Portsmouth Peace Treaty Centennial in their own, distinctive way.
