Yale Club of DC Virtual Event

 

Yale Alumni Virtual Performing Artists Series:
“Mother Tongue”
in Honor of Asian/Pacific-American Heritage Month
with Adrianna Tam MM ‘13 and Jing Ling-Tam

 

Saturday, May 29, 2021

2:00-3:00pm


This meeting will be conducted on Zoom.  Instructions will be provided upon registration

The program will offer audience members an entry point to the Asian-American experience: How does the first-generation  immigrant survive in the face of homesickness, language and cultural barriers, and xenophobia?  How does the second-generation American reconcile their hyphenated identity? Adrianna Tam partnering with her mother, Professor Jing Ling-Tam, a renowned musician and choral conductor, the program will also tell an intergenerational story of “making it” in America.
