Michael Morgan and Oakland Symphony: Vân-Ánh Vanessa Võ Fuses Vietnamese, Classical and Popular Music Feb. 12, 2016

Michael Morgan

Notes from Vietnam Feb. 12, 2016 

When Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated composer-performer Vân-Ánh Vanessa Võ takes the Paramount Theatre stage on February 12, she represents a living legacy that bridges traditional Vietnamese music and the worlds of classical, rap, jazz and hip-hop. Her "Lullaby for a Country" will receive its world premiere that evening as part of the Symphony's Notes from Vietnam program, which has a legacy of its own as part of our flagship annual series that introduces some of the world’s symphonic music traditions. It’s all part of our vision for bringing the community together, often through music that audiences wouldn’t expect to hear from a symphony orchestra. The concert also features a special guest from TV and Broadway: Michael Urie (Ugly Betty, Modern Family and other credits), who will narrate Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
