About this Event

SING OUT STRONG: Immigrant Voices is a free concert of new songs based on the stories and experiences of Boston area immigrants. Presented by White Snake Projects in partnership with WBUR's CitySpace, Sing Out Strong features composers from Peru, Latvia, India, China, Taiwan, and Mexico and writers from Haiti, Vietnam, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and China. Composers and writers have been paired up to amplify stories of the immigrant experience through song and to celebrate the contributions of immigrant artists to our city and culture. We'll also hear from a panel of immigration experts, including individuals with DACA status. Join us for this discourse on one of the most urgent social challenges facing us today.

The concert is free and open to the public but seating is limited and advance registration is required.

SING OUT STRONG: Immigrant Voices is a free public program in support of the new, DACA-themed opera, I Am a Dreamer Who No Longer Dreams, produced by White Snake Projects and composed by Jorge Sosa with libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs, directed by Elena Araoz and conducted by Maria Sensi Sellner, premiering at the Paramount Theater Robert J. Orchard Stage in Boston from September 20-22, 2019. Sign up for complimentary tickets through our TAP, White Snake Projects’ Ticket Access Program HERE.
