Charles Overton, Harp & Lucia Lin, Violin 

Selection from In Tandem and other works 

Harpist Charles Overton returns to Celebrity Series alongside violinist Lucia Lin for the world premiere of the latest installment of Lin’s "In Tandem" commissioning and performance project that aims to break down color barriers in classical music and create opportunities for young fans and young musicians to encounter contemporary music that speaks to them.   

Lin, a Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Symphony Chamber Players violinist, has created a series of new duo works in partnership with ten composers at California’s Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy, that speak to critical social issues, among them racism, elitism, and other barriers that obstruct people of color from full participation in classical music.  

As part of the "In Tandem" project, these performances feature a world premiere piece by Hawaii-based composer and educator Michael-Thomas Foumai, who has written many works for large and small ensembles that depict the rich history, the diverse cultures, and the threatened flora and fauna of the Hawaiian islands. 

Overton and Lin will perform other contemporary selections, to be announced.
