Press Quotes  
"Sebastian Currier's Sleepers and Dreamers, impressed as a strong, colorful and ingeniously crafted addition to the contemporary choral-orchestral repertory."
— John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

"…a strange and compelling nocturnal landscape for chorus and orchestra centered on dreams … a haunting and atmospheric work, scored with great skill and imagination for orchestra and chorus and resoundingly successful in conjuring the disturbing as well as absurd elements of dreams."
— Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review
