French composer Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem illuminates a peaceful passing into paradise.  The concert continues with seven actors, projected images, and the words of immigrants to create a moving account of the hopes and fears of those who arrived in America in search of a utopian world through Peter Boyer’s Ellis Island – Dream of America (featuring Mayor Wilmot Collins, Italian actress Christine Mayn, and others!).
