Silkroad Ensemble with Rhiannon Giddens Phoenix Rising

A musical rebirth from the culture-crossing ensemble, featuring reimagined arrangements and four new commissions.

Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center for the Arts
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts, Performances
Registration required. Fee required. Tickets required.

Fourteen Silkroad artists join their electrifying Artistic Director Rhiannon Giddens to reshape signature works of cultural exchange and share new inventions for our current moment. The group models—through their music—a vision for a more just and peaceful world, pulling from the vast talents and varied identities of their core artists.
Founded by cellist and humanitarian Yo-Yo Ma in 1998, the Silkroad Ensemble draws its name from the ancient trade routes between East Asia and the Mediterranean and is committed to highlighting the cultural commonalities between all people. Now, under the leadership of vocalist and banjo virtuosa Giddens, Phoenix Rising offers a sharpening and reinterpretation of what the ensemble's vision means today.
