After a thrilling opening night, we are so excited to be continuing the 2021 Collaborative Works Festival" Strangers in a Strange Land at the Dreihaus Museum!

Tonight's program examines the work of composers who migrated at some point during the course of their lives. Many of these composers immigrated to the United States because of the massive political upheaval in Europe during the first half of the 20th century. Two of these composers migrated from the American South to the North and the West as part of the Great Migration of African-Americans in the last century. Three are present-day immigrants to the United States.

I really love this page for continuing to advocate for opportunities in the arts, especially in these unprecedented times away from live theatre. This is why I’m so excited to share about an event coming up that will re-connect fans with the arts in the safest way possible. On March 31st at 7pm EST, The Giulio Gari Foundation will be hosting its third Giulio Gari Opera Salon Series on Facebook Live. This time, the foundation will be highlighting Steven Labrie, one of the five leading lyric baritones to watch by Opera News. Labrie has had an impressive career so far, featuring in productions such as “Three Decembers” and “La Straniera.” It is going to be a really special night where we will get to hear directly from Labrie about his career in music, while diving deeper into to the world of Opera from the comfort of our own homes. If you’ve been missing live theatre as much as I have, I think you will really enjoy your evening with the Giulio Gari Foundation. I hope to see a great turnout on March 31st on the Giulio Gari Foundation’s Facebook Live at 7pm!
