ACCLAIM FOR ELLIS ISLAND: THE DREAM OF AMERICA

Peter Boyer’s Ellis Island: The Dream of America is a sweeping opus masterfully chronicling, in words and music, the disparate experiences of seven European immigrants . . . It is at turns horrifying, whimsical and heart-rending.  But it’s always palpably engaging. -- Harold McNeil, The Buffalo News

Boyer’s orchestration is expert, and his conducting is remarkably precise. . . . The work, stirringly played by the orchestra, proved to be a searing emotional experience for many in the Bushnell audience. -- Gerald Moshell, The Hartford Courant
