THE GIFT PROJECT
Composed, Created, Directed & Performed by Diana Oh
April 9 & April 10, 2022
at Symphony Space

Multi-Hyphenate, First Generation, Queer Korean-American Unboxable Artist Diana Oh (they/them) and their live band present original music written for and inspired by Elders of Marginalized Experience or Identity.

 

Over the past several months, Diana has met with Elders born in 1956 or earlier who overcame incredible obstacles and lived remarkable lives. After each filmed interview, Diana retreated and wrote a song for each Elder, later returning to present them with their finished compositions. This concert combines those songs and the Elders’ astonishing stories into one uplifting evening that celebrates the lives of these extraordinary individuals.
