Nuclear Dreams - An Oral History of the Hanford Site

Please join us for the world premiere of Reginald Unterseher's "Hanford Dreams: an Oral History of the Hanford Site," a concert length work featuring mezzo soprano Sarah Mattox and baritone Charles Robert Stephens with chamber orchestra and chorus directed by Justin Raffa.

This work was commissioned by Mid-Columbia Mastersingers to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the B Reactor National Historical Landmark in Tri-Cities, Washington.

Three performances will be given over the weekend of September 27-29 inside the B Reactor facility's main room where the front face of the reactor is visible. Transportation is provided to the facility by charter bus from the Visitor's Center of the Hanford Unit of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park located at 2000 Logston Blvd in Richland, WA.

Consider attending one of our pre-concert experiences at the former home of Col Franklin Matthias along the Columbia River in North Richland. Matthias was a member of the US Army Corps of Engineers who secured the Hanford Site as the third and final location for the Manhattan Project. He lived in a rare pre-WWII home built in 1912 that has been beautifully preserved. Guests will enjoy a variety of food and drink offerings depending on the day. Please note that these events are ticket separately and are an add-on to the base concert ticket cost. Event tickets are limited as we can only accommodate up to 45 guests at the home before each concert. The charter bus will go directly from the Matthias home to the B Reactor and back.
