The Grand Constitution
The bicentennial of the oldest constitution of any musical society in the United States was celebrated at the Stoughton Public Library in Stoughton, Massachusetts on October 8, 1987, exactly 200 years after the Stoughton Musical Society's constitution was approved.

This bicentennial program included an original play
by Roger Hall about the writing of the Stoughton Musical Society's Constitution in 1787.
