"Sometimes I feel like a motherless child,

a long way from home, a long way from home.”

~African American Spiritual

The number of people migrating across international borders has grown significantly throughout the last century.  This concert explores the challenges and beauty of migration journeys through the musical reflections of composers. Each piece on the program reveals the particular ways that migration journeys have shaped the experience of ‘home.’
