Hello Gold Mountain is a requiem for the lost possibilities of the Jewish community of Shanghai. The work, an original composition by Wu Fei, tells the stories of Jewish refugees who fled from Europe to Shanghai during WWII, and later from Shanghai to San Francisco during the Chinese Civil War. Drawing on the musical traditions of eastern European Jewish culture and China, Hello Gold Mountain reflects on the cultural impact of refugee populations and their significance both then and now.
The premiere of the work will feature chatterbird along with Wu Fei on guzheng and Silk Road Ensemble’s Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz on oud — the traditional Chinese and Jewish plucked string instruments.
This performance is presented in partnership with the Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition, the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville, and the Jewish Community Center.
Tickets are $25-$90, free for Vanderbilt students with ID, available through chatterbird.org
Parking for this event is available for free in West Garage (2500 Children's Way) through the Children's Way entrance.
