While we were hopeful to gather and experience the performing arts together once again, our priority remains safety and well-being. Therefore, we’ve had to postpone this program to a future date when we can safely resume live programming.

Everything That Rises Must Converge celebrates her life, but also celebrates the universal story of refugees and immigrants to not only survive, but to rise up and give their children a better life.” -Jennifer Koh

Recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance, violinist Jennifer Koh is a forward-thinking artist dedicated to exploring a broad and eclectic repertoire, while promoting diversity and inclusivity in classical music. Davóne Tines, deemed a “…singer of immense power and fervor…” by The Los Angeles Times and a “...charismatic, full-voiced bass-baritone...” by The New York Times, is building an international career commanding a broad spectrum of opera and concert performance. Their new collaboration, Everything That Rises Must Converge, was born from the shared desire of its co-creators to understand themselves as the children and descendants of refugees and slaves. By juxtaposing their personal family histories and examining how they influenced their artistry and development as classical musicians, Koh and Tines reveal a shared universal history between the Black community and Asian Americans.
