Leo Eguchi: Unaccompanied
Saturday, February 25 @ 7:00 pmFree
The Tufts University Department of Music welcomes cellist Leo Eguchi performing “Unaccompanied,” featuring eight short new works by immigrant and first-generation American composers for solo cello. Inspired by his experience growing up in a mixed-race Japanese American family in the Midwest and questioning how he fit in the communities he inhabited, Eguchi commissioned composers whose own work draws from their unique immigrant and mixed-race experiences to answer the question, “What does your American-ness sound like?” Composers include James Diaz, Frank Duarte, Kareem Roustom, Shaw Pong Liu, Kenji Bunch, Milad Yousufi, Earl Maneein, and José-Luis Hurtado.
Co-founder of Oregon’s Willamette Valley Chamber Music Festival and Boston’s Sheffield Chamber Players, Eguchi performs in regional ensembles including New Bedford Symphony (as principal cellist), Portland Symphony, and the Boston Pops.
Note: Due to university COVID regulations, live audience attendees at Tufts Music events must be prepared to present a Tufts ID or COVID vaccination card showing that they have been vaccinated and boosted. This concert also can be viewed online via Tufts Music Live Streaming.
