New Jersey Symphony: The American DreamClassical
The American Dream Xian Zhang conductor Rob Kapilow conductor (Jan 20 Only) JCC Young People’s Chorus @ Thurnauer (Jan 20 only) Young People’s Chorus of New York City® (Jan 20 only) Ember Choral Arts | Deborah Simpkin King, artistic director (Jan 20 only) New Jersey Symphony Our nation’s music is a kaleidoscope that always turns to the new. Bernstein captured the energy and audacity of New York in his 1944 musical, On the Town, and made waves with a racially diverse cast; and his West Side Story put the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet on Manhattan fire escapes and sidewalks. We Came to America is a music journey of the immigrant experience, composed by Rob Kapilow from crowd-sourced stories into which he crafted melodies. Meanwhile, Still’s Darker America focuses on people who came to America by force, not choice.
