The Washington Revels Jubilee Voices performed at Harriet Chapel as part of the Iron Festival which is presented through the dedication of volunteers from The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Catoctin State Park, Harriet Chapel, The Thurmont Library, and numerous other community organizations.

The performance was generously sponsored by PNC Bank and centered around the lives of enslaved people who worked in the Catoctin Iron Furnace and helped build many of the structures in the Village of Catoctin Furnace.  The Washington Revels Jubilee Voices ensemble is a professional musical group committed to the preservation of African-American history and traditions—presenting songs and stories of struggle and perseverance, trials and triumphs, expressed through a cappella music, drama, and dance.
