Queens: The Symphony

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

The borough of Queens is probably the most diverse place on earth, in terms of the amount of languages spoken and the sheer diversity of immigrants living there. “1001 Voices: A Symphony for Queens” is Frank London’s mammoth piece for orchestra, ethnic instruments, actors, visual projections, and a 190-piece choir; the work examines our changing ideas of migration and home. The composer joins us along with the writer and actor Judith Sloan to talk about their collaboration.

i was part of this wonderful multimedia piece as a member of the Queens College Chorakl Society and was touched beyond words, so were many of the people who attended. The words and their meanings, with the visulas and the wonderful score under the direction of Konstantihn will be an experince I will never forget.
Kudos to all of you
