Event description
How can music reflect stories of migration and displacement?

About this Event

Music is a bridge between places and cultures, a language beyond nationalities. Yet, it can also be a source of identity and history, telling our stories and reflecting our paths. How do experiences of migration inform musical creation? How can challenges of displacement and exile inspire art?

Join Soundstreams on June 3rd as we explore these themes in an evening of performance and discussion, featuring composer, Juro Kim Feliz, and Soundstreams' Artistic Director, Lawrence Cherney. Migration and exile were central to composer Hanns Eisler, whose music and stories are featured in Soundstreams'  upcoming co-production with Luminato: Hell's Fury, the Hollywood Songbook. As a complementary perspective to the themes of exile in Eisler's lieder, written in the 1940s, Feliz' recent work explores music through the lens of present-day migration.

Doors at 7:00PM , music and discussion at 7:30PM.

General Admission – Free: seating is first come, first served.
