Black Georgetown Cemeteries Project


Thanks to all who supported our production of Voices of Zion last May 2022. The project was very successful in its initial iteration.

We are in the process of further developing the educational portion of the project in collaboration with several partners in the DC area.

Stay tuned!

Alliance for New Music Theatre joined in partnership with

the Mt. Zion FUBS Cemeteries

to create Voices of Zion,

an original work and immersive music-theatre experience

commemorating the two adjacent Black cemeteries in Georgetown,

and in honor of the 250th anniversary of

Dumbarton United Methodist Church

and just over the 200th anniversary of

Mt. Zion United Methodist Church,

the area's oldest African-American congregation.


This original work by Composer Ronald “Trey” Walton

and Librettist Jarrod Lee

celebrated its world premiere on Friday, May 6, 2022.
