This Day in History

On this day in 1798, a musical association consisting of 12 members was organized: six violin players, four flutists, one clarinet player and one bass violinist. Moses Kimball, a member of the association, wrote in a diary entry, that on the evening of June 14, the members went into the belfry of Mr. Andrews’ meeting house (then standing in what is now Market Square) and played several musical selections.
