The Northern Lights Choir, under direction of Helen Demong will perform “Voices of Timbuctoo” at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts this summer. ¬†This new work by Geneseo Composer, Glenn McClure, is based on the Adirondack settlement of Black farmers in the mid-1800’s designed to secure voting rights. Abolitionist Gerrit Smith gave away 120,000 acres of his land, beginning in 1846, hoping the Adirondack wilderness would offer refuge to black families.
