THE SINGERS' VAULT: Episode 1.2

Melissa Dunphy's American DREAMers was commissioned by Philadelphia community choir PhilHarmonia (Mitos Andaya Hart, Director) to bring to light the stories of immigrants in the wake of anti-immigrant rhetoric during and after the 2016 election. Five texts from five young Americans who were brought to America as children were chosen—Marlene Rangel, Javier Zamora, Janine Joseph, Julia Montejo, and Claudia D. Hernández—and those texts were woven into a multi-movement work that honors their story and inspires hope, empathy, and action. (Note by Melissa Dunphy) Recorded in concert on October 20, 2019 Melissa Dunphy (b. 1980): American DREAMers                                                   Marlene Part 1             Dancing in Buses             Marlene Part 2             More milk, more milk makes it better             Marlene Part 3             #UndocuJoy             Marlene Part 4             #UnitedWeDream For full program notes and texts, click here. ...
