My Journey Yours

Live in the Twin Cities and Online
Event date: 
15 Oct 2021 to 24 Oct 2021

Inspired by Elise Witt’s work of the same name, My Journey Yours considers why people leave home – by choice, by necessity, or by force – and how they adapt to their new homeland. This program honors the struggle, courage, and deep humanity of migration with music from around the world, as well as a newly commissioned piece by Melissa Dunphy, one of today’s most compelling compositional voices.
