This concert commemorates the 75th anniversary of FDR’s Executive Order 9066, which uprooted American citizens of Japanese descent all over the western United States and incarcerated them in camps. This concert is in collaboration with Cascadia Composers and the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center. Along with premieres of new compositions honoring the occasion by Cascadia composers Daniel Brugh, Ted Clifford, Denis Floyd, Janet Mittelstaedt, and Greg A Steinke, the program will feature photographs by New Mexico photographer (and camp documenter) Joan Myers, poetry/recitation by former Oregon Poet Laureate Lawson Fusao Inada, and a video by the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center. The Cascadia Composers are the Cascadia Chapter of the National Association of Composers/USA.
