Unheard Voices: An Immigrant’s Dream takes us on a musical odyssey with roots in El Salvador, Argentina, Russia, Sweden, and Ukraine. Ancestral rhythms, folkloric, and new music will mingle with the soaring voices of opera to paint a vibrant mural of the immigrant experience.
With ancestral voices from his indigenous roots, tenor Oswaldo Iraheta guides us to the heart of Argentina (Angel E. Lasala) and El Salvador (Juan Guerra Gonzalez) through the arduous journey of crossing the Rio Grande with “By the River” (Maury Yeston) and “Polo” (Manuel de Falla). Soprano MaKayla McDonald will perform the compelling aria from Menotti’s The Consul, revealing the challenges of trying to start a life in a new country, and “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” based on a poem written in 1899 by Paul Lawrence Dunbar, one of the most prominent African-American writers of his time.
Alma Swansson’s Prayers, a piano and cello premiere by Richard Pearson Thomas, reflects on his great grandmother as a young girl sent to America in 1899 with only a note pinned to her jacket never to see her family again. This tribute expresses the courage, longing, and hope that transcends time and bridges all generations.
Sky Caravan will perform an exciting Romanian medley, as well as John Williams’ Theme from Schindler’s List, and Melody by the Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk, which honors the unwavering spirit of the people of Ukraine.
Cellist Valeriya Sholokhova and Flutist Jessica Aura Taskov will perform premiere works on the program
