Yang & Olivia: The 5,000 Mile Journey
September 11, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Husband and wife duo Yang and Olivia are virtuosic talents who create an unforgettable storytelling event on violin and piano. In recent years, not only have they traveled to more than 30 cities in the United States, but they have also been performing and teaching in China, Portugal, Brazil, and Taiwan. Through music, this dynamic duo shares their messages of joy, love, and faith.
Throughout history, people have traveled thousands of miles to trade between the west and the east: produce, spices, gold, leather. Music traveled along with them. In this program, you will hear works by a Taiwanese female composer who incorporates ethnic children’s folk songs in her music, an American composer who incorporates Cuban dance music, and ancient Chinese folk tunes arranged for western instruments during a dark time in China when anything western was banned.
