Because We Come from Everything: YNYC Women’s Ensemble – Songs of displacement and home. They resonate today, when oppressive regimes at home and abroad seek to dehumanize people displaced by rigid ideologies and disasters environmental and economic. The challenge of our time is to know the stories and trials of these people. This requires language unambiguous in truth, resonant enough that the truth will not be forgotten. When it is too late to save the storyteller, the stories must be more urgently told. Repertoire includes: The Road Home; Stephen Paulus, From Rivers; Caroline Shaw, When the Earth Stands Still; Don Macdonald, Although the Wind; Jane Hirshfield, Alway Something Sings; Dan Forrest, I am in Need of Music; David L. Brunner, Only in Sleep; Erik Esenvalds, Spring Shall Bloom; Susan LaBarr
