Fly Me Away - an original jazz musical (song cycle performance)

April 14 – April 16, 2023
7 – 9PM

The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) is proud to collaborate with the emerging musician/artist Miguel Sutedjo for his original jazz musical, Fly Me Away through MOCA’s Creative Space Grant initiative. We will be presenting a song cycle performance on April 14 at 7pm and April 15 at 4pm at MOCA, followed by an additional performance on April 16 at 7pm at Bepler Commons, Fordham University.

Fly Me Away follows teenage jazz pianist Frank and his father as they move from Shanghai to New York City in pursuit of a better life. Despite his father’s dissuasion, Frank immerses himself in the NYC jazz scene; meanwhile, his father loses his corporate job and finds work in a Chinatown dumpling shop. As life grows more difficult for Frank and his father, they realize just what it takes to succeed in America and fly away to their dreams.
