Melodia Women’s Choir, Cynthia Powell Artistic Director, presents To Dream a World, a free virtual program. To Dream a World provides a refreshing musical response to the social justice issues that have come forward in the past year, as well as Melodia’s year on pause. Join us on Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon for a special premiere of three new virtual choir performances, including music from Ola Gjeilo, Carly Simon, and André J. Thomas. This concert also revisits the Melodia photo archive, video excerpts from Gloria: Lifting the Veil on Vivaldi’s Masterpiece, and the music of Florence B. Price performed by pianist Taisiya Pushkar.
Immediately following the program, all concert attendees are invited to a Zoom session to reflect and share thoughts on these questions:
What are you dreaming about for the world?
What are you dreaming about for yourself?
Attendees are also invited to bring a short reading to share.
