Crossing Boundaries Concert Series. #17: Through Her Eyes
7 – 8:30PM
We are excited to invite you to our first in-person Crossing Boundaries concert since 2019! This thrilling program features four stellar artists: musicians gamin (piri, saenghwang), Jacqueline Kerrod (electric harp), and Mariel Roberts (cello) will perform live to video by visual artist Sook Jin Jo from her art installations in Brazil and South Korea, including her installation of 304 lights in remembrance of the Sewol Ferry disaster in which 304 people, mostly high school students, died en route to Jeju island, South Korea on April 16, 2014. This concert is dedicated to those beautiful spirits who became stars.
Curated by multi-Instrumentalist gamin, this fifth season of Crossing Boundaries consists of three concerts exploring the theme of WOMEN IN MUSIC performed by female and female-identifying musicians. Following the performance there will be a conversation with the audience about the concert and the theme of gender in the music industry.

All patrons must show proof of vaccination at the door in order to be admitted, no exceptions. In addition, masks must be worn throughout.
“Gamin is one of the most celebrated piri, taepyeongso and saengwhang performers in Korea today.” — Silkroad
“Cellist Mariel Roberts has evolved to become one of the most adventurous figures on New York’s new music scene—one with a thorough grounding in classical tradition but a ravenous appetite for and tireless discipline in new work.” — Bandcamp Daily
“Many people think of original music in a hierarchical sense, looking down on pure improvisation as something that doesn’t require mastery or discipline. One listen to Jacqueline Kerrod’s solo harp debut will serve as an epiphany for those cynics. In fact, I found myself awestruck by Kerrod’s seemingly limitless expressive range.” — Yoshi Maclear Wall The Whole Note
“[Sook Jin] Jo’s work operates at the intersection of abstraction and human need, creating intimate spaces and experiences of peace and solace that acknowledge emotional or spiritual connections.” — https://sculpturemagazine.art/out-of-the-ordinary-a-conversation-with-sook-jin-jo/?mc_cid=8e62d00b57&mc_eid=UNIQID
