Choral Music at UCI Presents
ellen reid’s dreams of the new world
UCI Chamber Singers, soloists, and sinfonietta
Dr. Seth Houston, conductor
UCI Chamber Singers presents dreams of the new world, a major new work commissioned by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, in a concert-quality “workshop performance.” The work, by composer Ellen Reid with librettist Sarah LaBrie and lead researcher Sayd Randle, explores themes of the American dream, both aspired to and realized, in Memphis, Houston, and Los Angeles. The work, which features a 14-member professional instrumental ensemble and five vocal soloists, will premiere in Walt Disney Concert Hall in May, 2018. Please join the composer, librettist, lead researcher, and performers for a post-concert TalkBack.
Jointly sponsored by UCI Illuminations and the Department of Music.
