"Them Foreigners"

  • McKinney Chapel at First Unitarian Church, Brooklyn 116 Pierrepont Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)

Many Baroque composers made musical characterizations of peoples who were exotic to them, such as Native Americans, Turkish, Polish, and French. Tapping into the current national issues about immigration and racism, Repast presents a cultural flashback to relevant issues of encountering “the other” in musical discourse.
