The Harlem Chamber Players & New Amsterdam Singers: The World of Dreams
Judith Shatin — La Frontera ("The Border")
Dale Trumbore — Charting the World (world premiere)
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.
This program will be performed twice: Thursday, March 16 and Sunday, March 19 at Broadway Presbyterian Church. The Sunday, March 19 concert will also be livestreamed at 4pm Pacific.
