@The Grand Opera House
in Galveston

From three-time Tony winner and Hamilton choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler comes an inspiring new American musical that explodes with infectious music and high-octane, heart-stopping dancing. It’s 1945 and six soldiers return from war to a changed nation. They form a band unlike any the nation has ever seen, and along the way, discover the power of music to face the impossible, find their voice, and finally feel like they have a place to call home. “The show defies you not to be moved” (Time Out New York). BANDSTAND is “both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II. It’s a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and more viscerally” (The New York Times). More info at

Dream of America
@Miller Outdoor Theatre

"I was dreaming to come to America. Yes, I was dreaming and my dream came true. It was so peaceful. It was so wonderful here. It was quiet. You were not afraid. The doors were open.” Polish immigrant Helen Cohen, emigrated in 1920, age 20.
These words, gleaned from the Ellis Island Oral History Project, combine with contemporary composer Peter Boyer’s original orchestral score in Ellis Island: The Dream of America.

Ellis Island celebrates the historic American immigrant experience by highlighting seven immigrants’ stories, dramatically interpreted here by young actors from Houston’s Emery/Weiner School. The Orchestra will open with “The Sea Hawk Overture” by Joseph Korngold, an Austrian-born Jewish composer who fled persecution in Europe to come to the United States. In addition, internationally renowned artists from the Mitsi Dancing School will join TMCO as the dancers interpret Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. Mitsi Dancing School is owned and directed by Chinese immigrants Jia Ma and Teng Fei. The school was voted one of the Rising 10 small businesses by Houston’s Asian Chamber of Commerce in 2019.

The Program:
Erich Korngold Overture to the Sea Hawk
Igor Stravinsky The Firebird Suite (L'Oiseau de feu; 1919 version; Concert Suite for Orchestra No. 2)
Peter Boyer Ellis Island: The Dream of America
The award-winning Texas Medical Center Orchestra, one of the few community orchestras in the nation with origins in the health professions, includes many immigrant members dedicated to performing affordable concerts for Houston’s diverse audiences and bringing programmatic support for medically related charities.
