Two Immigrants, by Jenni Brandon, performed by The South Bend Chamber Singers, South Bend Indiana on May 19, 2023, 7:30 PM at the Church of Our Lady of Loretto, Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame. The title of the concert is Crossing Borders. This is a concert of choral works about Immigration and will feature 3 works.

The first, by Australian-American composer Melissa Dunphy. Melissa has created a mixed chorus version which was premiered in this concert. The work is entitled “N-400 Erasure Songs”.

The second major work is American composer Henry Mollicone’s “Misa de los Inmigrantes,” (Mass for the Immigrants) for soprano solo, female narrator, chorus, and instrumental ensemble. The work was written as a tribute to all immigrants in the hope of raising injustices in our present immigration system.

The third work is “Two Immigrants for SATB choir, cello, and piano” by Jenni Brandon. It tells the story of two young immigrants who come to America from a different land. They seek out what many immigrants did in coming to America – a chance to build a life, grow a career and family, and live the American dream.
