Great National Peace Jubilee
(1869)

World's Peace Jubilee
(1872)

 

 

Both these music festivals were held in Boston. They were organized by bandleader,
Patrick Sarsfield Gilmore [shown at left]. The 1869 festival was organized
to commemorate the end of the Civil War, and
U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant attended the opening ceremonies.

At the 1872 festival, one of the special invited guests was Johann Strauss Jr.
(The Waltz King) from Vienna.

There were thousands of musicians in the orchestra and chorus who participated
in these two "monster" music festivals.
