Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during stages of sleep. The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest.

As the Christmas holiday spirit envelopes us, C. Kenneth Lee returns to UMAG for Members’ Day with a new special holiday musical fest — Once Upon a Dream. Let us gather with family and friends to enjoy an interactive performance with songs we love to listen and sing-along to. The little ones would particularly enjoy Once Upon a Dream, White Christmas and Let it Go (from the movie Frozen). Come join us and dream together for peace and joy in our families and in this world.
