The World of Dreams

March 16, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

New Amsterdam Singers salutes American composers who have chosen great poetry — from Hilaire Belloc to e.e. cummings — with expressive references to dreams. These works span 80 years, from Louise Talma’s charming Let’s Touch the Sky from 1952 to Judith Shatin’s 2021 La Frontera, a poignant setting of poems by an undocumented teenager at the U.S. southern border, to Dale Trumbore’s Charting the World, a newly commissioned piece that will receive its world premiere at this concert. After our first-ever collaboration in May 2022, The Harlem Chamber Players will again join the chorus on this program.

Tickets on sale beginning October 15.

All NAS singers and staff are fully vaccinated. All audience members will be asked to provide proof of vaccination and to remain masked throughout the performance.
