Event description

Description

Master Singers of Virginia presents a concert exploring the local roots and conflicts in achieving the American Dream, with music by Stephen Paulus, Robert Shaw, Marques L.A. Garrett, Knut Nystedt, Darmon Meader, and others. The Pilgrims dreamed of a New World free of religious persecution, while Native Americans dreamed of living in peace on their land. Our forefathers dreamed of a new nation, independence, and a shining new Capital city. When Civil War pitted brother against brother, we dreamed of a united nation, and freedom from slavery. As wars rocked our world, we dreamed of escape from the cares of the world. We dream of prosperity, and equality, new horizons in space, and family. Most of all, we dream of peace. In a script by Mary Ellen Connelly, using letters, speeches, and essays alongside modern choral music, we will explore the many facets of the American Dream.
