2021–2022 FORUM ON MIGRATIONAcross Cultures and Time: Music by Ania Vu
Composer and pianist Ania Vu performs a recital of her own music, some of which is influenced by her multicultural upbringing. Born and raised in Poland, and of Vietnamese descent, Vu has a passion for music, text, and languages. Join us for an intimate program featuring a song cycle set to French poetry by Verlaine and Prévert, songs set to Vu’s own words in Polish, solo piano music, and a duo for percussion and piano. Vu will be accompanied by soprano Paulina Swierczek and percussionist Alyssa Resh.
