About the Event

Dinosaur Annex Music Ensemble kicks off its 48th season with Sonic Migrations, the third cycle of Hub of the Musiverse, a concert series which centers the stories, struggles, and triumphs of immigrants through new music. Whether through the inspiration behind each composition, or the composers themselves, each program highlights the diversity and importance of immigrant voices and centers their stories in our community.

The program includes incisive works by Aida Shirazi and Golnaz Shariatzadeh, members of the Iranian Female Composers Association, an organization founded to provide a welcoming space for Iranian female-identifying compositional voices around the globe. Kareem Roustom’s Aleppo Songs takes urban folk songs from Aleppo, transforming them into grand pianistic gestures. Bongani Ndodana-Breen’s Emakhaya recalls scenes of village life of the Xhosa people of South Africa's Eastern Cape province.

The concert is sponsored by the Social Action Committee of First Parish of Watertown, and is made possible by the Massachusetts Cultural Council; the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency; the Alice M. Ditson Fund; and the Copland Fund for New Music.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Watertown Citizens Refugee Support Group.
