Encounter the trials and rewards of leaving one’s homeland with the hope of better tomorrows, as you share the journey through music and prose including actual letters from people who passed through Ellis Island. Together, we will experience what happens when one’s life is transformed by boldly stepping into the unknown. The powerful works selected for this program include Letters from Ireland by Mark Brymer featuring an Irish band, The Golden Door by R. Perera featuring a chamber ensemble, Malala – Pakistani Girl by L. Nickel, and Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor by Irving Berlin.
Funding for this program has been allocated from the Vonnie Jones and Maglona Jones Fund, the Villarreal Family Fund, and the Louis B. Ehrich, Jr. Fund within the Racine Community Foundation.
