Event description

Description

Violinist-looper/composer Joe Kye will release his new album, Migrants, and kick off his international tour at Alberta Abbey in Portland on October 27. Born in Korea and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Kye will present an eclectic evening filled with music, movement, and emotional exuberance.

Joining Kye will be BRAVO Youth Orchestra, an outfit comprised of young musicians from underserved Portland Public Schools, playing selections from his new record. Additionally, Kye will premiere his eponymous work, Migrants, a collaborative piece for music and dance with internationally-acclaimed dancer Ching Ching Wong, currently of the the NW Dance Project. The two will perform together around the world, with stops in Nepal, Los Angeles, Japan, San Francisco, China, Israel, South Korea, and NYC. Portland Chamber Orchestra outfit ARCO-PDX will be rounding out the bill with their eclectic, modern sound.

A multi-disciplinary exploration of identity, culture, and the spirit of human migration, Migrants will also include tales of immigration from Kye and Wong’s personal journeys. The show explores many themes relevant to a rapidly globalizing world: the celebration of roots, cross-cultural interactions, and the need to recognize universal humanity across borders and artificial boundaries. At its conclusion, Migrants will offer audiences an opportunity to root themselves in their local community while simultaneously seeing themselves as part of a global village.
