A recital on homeland, immigration, and the American Dream.
THE WANDERERS is a recital project that deconstructs the 19th-Century German concepts of homelands and belonging by viewing them through the lens of Jewish and Sino-Vietnamese diasporas.
Song cycles by 20th- and 21st-Century composers are interspersed with selections of Franz Schubert (1797-1828) to investigate what it means to wander the earth in search of a homeland.
THE WANDERERS features works of contemporary composers that have never been professionally recorded. One of the primary goals of the project is to create a resource for other singers and music lovers to discover and appreciate these stories.
