We, The People

We, the People concert Series

The Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra presents “We, The People” concert series funded in part by an Arts grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. From 2021 to 2023 the Virtuosi will introduce audiences to the rich and diverse cultural threads woven by America’s immigrants into 20th and 21st-century music. Each concert features an immigrant composer and/or musician, whose music reflects inspiration from a distinct culture or group of cultures. Each concert includes written and/or spoken word pieces by writers who are themselves immigrants from the culture(s) being highlighted. When words fail, music speaks. The series explore connections between cultures, languages, and people. The New Britain concerts are held at the New Britain Museum of American Art. The Hartford concerts are held at the Seaverns Room at the Bushnell.
