Event Description

Come journey around the world with us! Violinist Miera Kim and cellist Carey Bostian take the audience around the world with works inspired by Greek, American, Gullah, Lebanese, Chinese, and Argentinian folk traditions. Expect music that makes your heart ache, transports you to another land, and makes you want to dance. VOYAGERS will include world premieres of five new works by composers Wajdi Abou Diab, Jimmy Kachulis, Victoria Malawey, Lauren McCall, and Roydon Tse.
