The Carmel Symphony Orchestra is hosting a  multi-media experience of The Dream Of America with the help of actors and video projection on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. in the Palladium.

Peter Boyer’s Ellis Island: The Dream of America utilizes actors, projected images, and words of seven immigrants to create a moving account of the immigrant experience. It is a powerful testament to the experience of thousands of immigrants who entered America through that iconic portal of Ellis Island – a reminder that, for so many who have come here, America has been a symbol of freedom and opportunity for a new life.

The Carmel Symphony Orchestra will also perform Beckel’s Make A Joyful Noise and Antonín Dvořák’s Cello Concerto. Each selection celebrates the spirit of America and its melting pot heritage.

“We have such a great musical tradition in this country,” says David Bowden, Artistic Director for the Carmel Symphony Orchestra. “There’s a real majesty to this music that is sure to inspire us all.”

“The combination of mediums makes this an unforgettable and very unique musical experience for the audience,” says Alan Davis, President and CEO of the Carmel Symphony Orchestra. “The audience is in for a memorable evening.”

Ticket-holders are invited to arrive early at 6:45pm for Music Matters featuring Carmel Symphony Artistic Director David Bowden for a behind-the-scenes discussion of the concert’s music and composers.

Single ticket purchases are available by calling the Center’s Box Office at 317.843.3800 or by Discounts for students are also available: the $5 YouthPASS for High School and younger, and the $10 CollegePASS for College students.
