Friday Webinars at Wharton Arts is an hour-long weekly program where artists of different disciplines make authentic connections between art and life through sharing their stories, expertise and creations. These webinars are curated and hosted by Artistic Director Helen H. Cha-Pyo.
This week’s webinar is La Frontera: Stories of Migration in Movement, a newly commissioned, 20-minute multi-movement piece for string ensemble and percussion quartet, guitar, and voice that honors the journey of migrants and ties together this common human experience, drawing upon the composer’s extensive experience performing and composing classical, Latin, jazz, and fusion music.
