Composers Without Borders

Imagine a concert of choral music written by composers from within conflicting boundaries, whose music speaks to all who can comprehend and be moved by works of art having no association with today’s volatile political landscape. This is that concert, and hopefully you will walk away feeling the all-embracing, unifying magic of music. -Harold Rosenbaum.

March 3, Sunday, 3 PM: Composers Without Borders - music by American, Iranian, Ukrainian, Russian and Chinese composers. Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W. 64th Street

Composers Without Borders – The Ties that Bind Us

The constitution’s preamble begins with the words “We the people,” a term which over the centuries has taken on a life of its own. In the context of our concert, entitled Composers Without Borders – The Ties That Bind Us, we focus on the unity of humankind, not individual governments, whether open and honest or repressive and evil. There are countless common threads present in people from all over the globe. The desire and ability to express oneself through music is one which cannot be suppressed by leaders of countries. Music unifies and uplifts all people. Our concert highlights the unending compositional creativity of mankind despite the complicated interrelationships of the countries represented.

Joel Mandelbaum: Sea Surface Full of Clouds
Chen Yi: Spring Dreams
Alfred Schnittke: Concerto for Choir
Ramin Amir Arjomand: Salve Regina
