Featuring the world premiere of Wu Fei's evening-length work, Hello Gold Mountain, inspired by stories of Jewish refugees in Shanghai.

Hello Gold Mountain is a requiem for lost possibilities of the Jewish community of Shanghai. The work, an original composition by Wu Fei, will feature chatterbird along with Wu Fei, guzheng, and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz, oud (Silkroad Ensemble). The piece is inspired by stories of Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai from Europe during World War II. This premiere is supported in part by the MAP Fund.

Leading up to the premiere, chatterbird will partner with the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, the Nashville Public Library, and the Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashvilleto offer community programming that shares the stories of these refugees.
