Mei-Ann’s Circle of Friends presents

the

Initially Mei-Ann’s Circle of Friends started as a women’s philanthropic circle, formed to honor the Memphis Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director, Mei-Ann Chen. The vision rapidly grew into the Dream Project, the group’s first symphonic commission inspired by the speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The women intend to tell an iconic part of Memphis history through an original score which captures their collective memory of the MLK assassination that cast a “pall” over their community. The powerful movements will move into their collective imagination of what they envision their city could become. The Birth of the Dream concert is scheduled to be performed by the MSO on May 16, 2014 at the Cannon Center. Meet Maestra Chen and some of the women as they begin to reveal their story - just open this video link: http://vimeo.com/memphissymphony/dream
