Kent Tritle conducts two timely world premieres. Sanctuary Road, by Pulitzer Prize-winners Paul Moravec (music) and Mark Campbell (text), tells of journeys toward freedom on the Underground Railroad led by William Still, an African American abolitionist. We Are One by Juilliard professor Behzad Ranjbaran presents texts from different periods, cultures, and languages, reflecting on the human desire for mutual respect and peace. Together, these pieces seek to encourage us to hope that human dignity will prevail.
