What does it mean to belong? Who gets to belong and who becomes “other” as citizens of America? In an upcoming performance at BAM, a violinist and a baritone vocalist use their instruments, voices and family recordings to answer these very questions on their quests to self-discovery. As part of this artistic journey, the audience bears witness to the shared experiences of Asian Americans and Black Americans in the classical music field. “Everything Rises” is a two-actor show performed and written by Grammy-winning violinist Jennifer Koh and bass baritone Davóne Tines.
