The concert in which the Glee Club participated, held May 6, 1962 in the East Garden Court of the National Gallery of Art, at the beginning of the festival, was a program of music about the Revolutionary War and the founding of the country; the Glee Club performed The Testament of Freedom. Other performances in the series included Persichetti's "Song Cycle 'Harmonium' on Poems by Wallace Stevens," with the composer at the piano.
