Refugee artists across disciplines come together in conversation and performance. Members of Refugee Orchestra Project perform works by refugee composers from the 20th century and today featuring refugee musicians, visual art by refugee artists, and mini-documentaries by refugee filmmaker Tarek Turkey.
The Refugee Orchestra is under the direction of Lidiya Yankovskaya, Music Director of the Chicago Opera Theater.
