About Hello Gold Mountain
HELLO GOLD MOUNTAIN is an original composition by Wu Fei for chamber orchestra, performed by chatterbird ensemble, featuring Wu Fei on guzheng and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (Silk Road Ensemble) on oud — the traditional Chinese and Jewish plucked string instruments respectively.
The work is inspired by real stories of Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai from Europe before and during World War II, and built lives in China.
Hello Gold Mountain premiers February 23, 2019 at Vanderbilt University's Ingram Hall in Nashville, TN. Tickets are now on sale at the link below!
