The Song Poet Workshop

You are invited!

Thursday, December 15, 2022 — 7pm

You are invited to experience the process behind the development of a world-premiere work. In this workshop presentation, vocalists and a pianist will perform excerpts from the first Hmong story adapted for the operatic stage.  

St. Paul writer Kao Kalia Yang’s memoir The Song Poet tells the story of Yang’s family and her song poet father as war drives them from the mountains of Laos into a Thai refugee camp and ultimately on to the challenging world of life as an immigrant. With his poetry, Kalia’s father inspires hope in his family, polishing their reality so that they might shine.

Admission is free to attend The Song Poet Workshop, however a ticket is required for entry.
