DUST BOWL

Anthony J. Maglione’s acclaimed musical exploration of Texas history, which played to sold-out audiences during its world premiere in 2020, triumphantly returns to Dallas. The originally-crafted work, which was hailed by Dallas critics as “breathtaking” and “unlike anything else in our city,” features first-hand accounts of survivors of the Dust Bowl with additional newspaper articles and diary entries. In collaboration with bluegrass band, video projection, and choreographed movement, Verdigris Ensemble brings Dust Bowl back to Dallas and asks the question: how did this happen and have we learned from our mistakes?

Verdigris Ensemble Sings Of Human Resilience Amidst Dust Bowl Destruction
January 13, 2020

a?oeIt looked like the end of the world.a?? The dust storm on Palm Sunday 1935 is engraved in the memories of witnesses as a day of apocalyptic nightmare. One of the worst storms of the Dust Bowl, Black Sunday punished the already beleaguered Great Plains with a tsunami wave of airborne dust. An environmental disaster brought about by human shortsightedness, changing regional weather patterns, and the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl brought death and darkness to the plains during the 1930's. Jackrabbit infestations, dust pneumonia, grasshopper plagues, and economic collapse created a profound setting for human resilience amidst death and loss. This February, Dallas-based professional choir Verdigris Ensemble brings the trials of this environmental catastrophe to audiences with a groundbreaking piece of documentary performance that redefines the boundaries of choral music. This genre-redefining work tells the story of the Dust Bowl with blistering honesty and deep empathy.
