Asian Resilience & Joy
On May 9, Fear No Music continues its landmark 30th Anniversary Season with Asian Resilience & Joy, an exuberant celebration of new work by composers from the vast Asian diaspora.
With awareness of the ongoing discrimination towards Asian Americans, the concert offers a vibrant, prismatic look at the multi-dimensional lives and richly diverse influences of Asian cultures. It is sponsored by Oregon Rises Above Hate and coincides with Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
Artistic Director Kenji Bunch offers these thoughts on the program: “With this concert…we celebrate the vivid colors, wildly diverse backgrounds and full range of expressions of the human experience, including humor, playfulness, gratitude, and elation.”
As one of few BIPOC-led non-profits in the Portland metro area, Fear No Music revels in the bold presentation of music that reflects cultural significance and heritage.
The live concert is Monday, May 9, 7:30 pm at The Old Church Concert Hall, 1422 SW 11th Ave. A virtual concert will be available Monday, May 23, 7:30 pm on the Fear No Music YouTube channel.
