Relevant Tones: Angel Island Oratorio

Angel Island – Oratorio for Voices and Strings by Huang Ruo is inspired by the poems carved into the walls at the detention center at Angel Island Immigration Station during the Chinese Exclusion Act years.

This new work, commissioned by the Del Sol Quartet, takes an unflinching look at discrimination and immigration issues in our nation, past and present.

Host Seth Boustead talks with Huang Ruo and founding violist of the Del Sol Quartet Charlton Lee.
