During this episode, Baltimore Choral Arts Society & Composer Jasmine Barnes celebrates dreamers: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Frederick Douglass, & Harriet Tubman.


Dreamer, An MPT Artworks Special centers around the development of a budding relationship between the Baltimore Choral Arts Society (BCAS) and young composer Jasmine Barnes. Jasmine, a Morgan State alumna, is commissioned by brilliant young BCAS director and conductor Anthony Blake Clark to compose a piece to be premiered at Mozart Requiem Reframed, a concert put forth by BCAS at Goucher College.

In the spirit of celebrating Maryland, Barnes decides to infuse in her work the inspiration from two Marylanders, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. Musically and textually, her composition features quotes from both Douglass and Tubman while thematically connecting them to unlikely figures such as Mozart and the City of Baltimore. Mozart’s requiem, unfinished at the time of his passing at age 37, is linked to the tragic loss of young Baltimore lives and is housed in Frederick Douglass’ and Harriet Tubman’s spirit of freedom fighting and dreaming.
