The American Dream Concert

Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Birmingham City University 200 Jennens Road, Birmingham, West Midlands, B47XR
The American Dream

About

On 20 November we present 3 great American Composers, and one of our favourite locals, with music discussing the American dream, the media built around it, and in turn a failed utopia.

The American dream, coined in the 1930's, was the belief that anyone, regardless of background, can be a limitless success. In reality, this idea fast became a way for companies to sell products to hopefuls who were desperate for the unattainable lifestyle promised to them.

Hear the new piece Breaking by George Lewis where he renders long exposure photography into music, inspired by renowned North American photographer and artist Stan Douglas. Stan Douglas's work examines our modern world and the obsolete dreams and technologies that surround us.

Art inspires art, and at BCMG we believe in combining our senses for new experiences, expect to see a very special merchandise drop around this wonderful event.
