Music Behind Barbed Wire centers on life in American concentration camps between 1942-1946. This program features the world premiere of Behind Barbed Wire for saxophone and piano composed by Deon Nielsen Price to be performed by Mary Au and Chika Inoue. The legendary Mary Nomura (Songbird of Mazanar) will sing original works from Manzanar including her own Can’t Fool This Heart of Mine, and East West Players will bring us Residence Elsewhere, a play that “depicts three different narratives in time, location, and sentiment:” EO9066, Native American relocation, and Immigration ban. Other performers include Kyodo Taiko, Calle Mayor Middle School Choir, The United Male Chorus of Los Angeles, and more.
Music Behind Barbed Wire takes place Tuesday, April 14th at 7:30 p.m. at the CSUDH University Theatre.
