Take a musical ride on the Underground Railroad to meet the heroic Harriet Tubman, and learn of her early experiences as a slave. Discover how Tubman led fellow freedom-seeking slaves to hiding places on their way to safety in the North. Hope Shiver interweaves Tubman’s poignant story with spirituals and work songs, allowing students to discover the lyrics of such songs as “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “Git on Board,” which often contained hidden messages for slaves preparing to escape to freedom. David Keepman provides musical accompaniment as students chant, clap, cheer, and rejoice in experiencing the famous railroad.

Young Audiences of Houston offers family friendly, live art experiences perfect for a wide variety of ages. These interactive workshops and performances last between 60 and 90 minutes and involve YAH artists and ensembles, crossing genres of dance, visual arts, theater, music, and literary arts.
