Salon Season 2019-2020
Listen to the Voices: Immigrant Stories – Event postponed, new date to be announced
How does an artist respond to the surge of anti-immigrant sentiment? Rimon’s next Artist Salon, Listen to the Voices: Immigrant Stories, on April 22 (7 pm) features composers Sergio Barer and Adam Wernick in conversation on the power of music to lift up marginalized voices and to build bridges of understanding.
Join us as at St. Paul’s East Side Freedom Library (1105 Greenbrier St., St. Paul), featuring Mexican Jewish composer Sergio Barer in dialogue with composer/moderator Adam Wernick. Sergio Barer is a 2019-20 McKnight Fellow in music composition. He was commissioned to create a suite of chorale pieces inspired by his interviews with more than two dozen immigrants whom he met in the Twin Cities. The Salon will feature live performances of vocal quartets of Barer performed by Cantors Audrey Abrams (Beth El), Joanna Dulkin (Adath Jeshurun), Richard Schwartz (Bet Shalom), and Rimon’s Executive Director David Jordan Harris.
