APRIL – Coming to America

DATE: April 16, 2023
TIME: 3:00 pm

LOCATION: St. Norbert College, Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts – Byron L. Walter Theatre

Our season finale consists of an afternoon honoring America! Victor Herbert’s American Fantasia combines a variety of patriotic favorites you’re sure to recognize, including a rousing rendition of our national anthem. Peter Boyer’s Ellis Island celebrates the historic American immigrant experience and the American dream. Innovative in its format, the work brings elements of the theater and multimedia into the concert hall, with historical images from the Ellis Island archives and spoken texts from the Ellis Island Oral History Project.
