The five-time Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Girls Chorus will showcase the world premiere of Angel Island Passages, a multi-media work by composer Chen Yi in collaboration with the Cypress String Quartet and award-winning Bay Area film maker Felicia Lowe, in two performances Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5, at 8 p.m. at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
The new work commemorates the 100th anniversary of Angel Island Immigration Station, known as “the Ellis Island of the West,” and evokes the experiences of Chinese immigrants in music, ancient and contemporary poetry, film, video and photography. Also on the program, entitled “A New Land, A New Song,” are works by Stravinsky, Dvorak and others. The San Francisco Conservatory of Music is located at 50 Oak Street, San Francisco, 94102.
