April 13: Juventas Performs ” The New Colossus”

March 16, 2019

On April 13, Juventas will present the Boston premiere of The New Colossus, Oliver’s setting of the iconic words that grace the Statue of Liberty.  Over a century ago, author Emma Lazarus penned a sonnet so powerful it would come to symbolize America’s place in the world for generations. “Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp,” she wrote. “Give me your tired, your poor.”

The concert, entitled Voices of America, offers new music inspired by our nation’s history as a beacon of freedom, with new music that shares stories of immigrants and refugees. In addition to Oliver’s music, you’ll hear new works by Tatev Amiryan, Justin Giarrusso, Mari Kotskyy, Ursula Kwong-Brown, Nebal Maysaud and Jorge Sosa.

Saturday, April 13, 7:30pm
