event: OUR STORY IS NOT OVER
March 17, 2022
Suzanne Roberts Theater - Broad Street - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Mendelssohn Chorus of Philadelphia - Dominick DiOrio
We grieve, we process, we begin to rebuild
Loss moves from pain into healing. Oppression moves from pain into resilience and power. Anguish moves from pain into hope. In March, we bring together music and poetry for a program of resilience, hope, and affirmation to take us beyond our current state to a new vision of being and belonging.
Featuring GRAMMY Award Winning baritone soloist Dashon Burton in both art song and choral music interwoven with poetry by Elizabeth Scanlon. Also featuring music of Reena Esmail, Dale Trumbore, Joel Thompson, and a world premiere by Philadelphia composer Melissa Dunphy. Plus… excerpts of major works by Paul Moravec (Sanctuary Road) and Ralph Vaughan Williams (Five Mystical Songs), and also featuring my original works Walking to the Sun and Let Us Plant Our Gardens Now.
