The #StopAsianHate Benefit Concert
@ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In light of ongoing and rising violence against Asian people in the US, Wear Yellow Proudly presents The #StopAsianHate Benefit Concert in partnership with the Asian American Federation to raise awareness, funds for social change, and provide solace through music and art. Wear Yellow Proudly hopes to bring all Asian people, artists, and allies together. In these times of great hardship, we all need music and art to build our community and let our voices be heard.
The #StopAsianHate Benefit Concert will be hosted by esteemed stage director, artistic director, and educator Matthew Ozawa. Performing in the event will be Asian artists Fleur Barron, Lyndsey Britten, Spencer Britten, Justine Chen, Kristen Choi, Jason Chun, Ling Ling Huang, Myra Huang, Kelly Kuo, John Myers, Nicholas Phan, Andrew Stenson, and Susan Zhang. This concert will go live virtually on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 7pm ET and can be viewed on Facebook and YouTube via Wear Yellow Proudly, as well as through our broadcasting partners’ Facebook pages.
The concert selections include a scene from Huang Ruo’s opera “An American Soldier,” original poetry read by Jason Chun, “Diamond Impressions” by Chihchun Chi-sun Lee with choreography by Lyndsey Britten, “Something Wonderful” from “The King and I,” and more.
