Our journey begins at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration with Peter Boyer’s Fanfare for Tomorrow. We then journey back to the late 18th century and explore excerpts of writings and speeches by George Washington set to music by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, an Afro-British composer of the time, in The American Rhapsody. One hundred years later, we meet seven immigrants who came through Ellis Island on their journey to America. Today, their stories are told via Boyer’s Ellis Island: The Dream of America. Spoken texts for the work come from the Ellis Island Oral History Project, and are performed by seven actors. With stage direction by Craig Jessen, celebrate our heritage and America’s journey with us.
