Music At The Meeting House: In Mo Yang

FRI, APR 6, 2018 (40:42)

New England Conservatory Artist Diploma student, In Mo Yang, talks about the theme of Occupation. Yang describes how the pieces he chose to perform connect to not only the immigrant experience but also to his own country’s story of being occupied.

This is one in a 4-part series at Old South Meeting Hous presented as part of New England Conservatory’s Community Performances & Partnerships Program, featuring performers from the school’s prestigious Artist Diploma and Graduate Ensemble Training programs. This concert is part of the theme exploring historic and contemporary ideas of “Occupation” as Old South Meeting House marks the 250th anniversary of Boston’s military occupation of 1768
