Hats off to the Fine Arts Center for making this amazing cultural opportunity available for our communities.
Note: The first performance for which we have vouchers is THIS THURSDAY, November 7. You could experience Jen Shyu: Nine Doors for free! Jen Shyu is a Guggenheim Fellow, USA Fellow, Doris Duke Artist, Fulbright scholar, and composes, sings and performs on piano, violin, Taiwanese moon lute, Chinese er hu, Japanese biwa, Korean gayageum, Korean soribuk, and a Korean gong called "ggwaenggwari." Her solo multilingual and multi-instrumental piece Nine Doors explores powerful female legends as guides to express the importance of empathy over humanity's destructive impulses. Sung in Indonesian, Javanese, Taiwanese, Mandarin, Tetum, Korean, Japanese, and English, the work is "a full length multilingual, ritual music drama."
Please come to the upstairs circulation desk if you would like these tickets!
