From the Native Americans to Ellis Island and beyond, here are some carefully selected songs and stories of several different groups that have come to America over the past 1,000 years, along with some musical instruments they brought with them. Themes touched upon include why people immigrated to America, what they expected to find, how they got here and where they are now. Fully interactive!
Optional songwriting session available after the concert – write your own immigration songs!
