황금빛 입은 소녀

披着金光的女孩

At the end of Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival week in September, Piedmont Opera is sponsoring a song recital program entitled Girls of Yellow Diamonds. Presented by artists affiliated with the nonprofit Wear Yellow Proudly, the performance features Asian women composers and poets with the intention of raising awareness and uplifting the stories of Asian women. Performing songs in Mandarin and Korean (with translations printed in the program) and English, classical singers Alice Chung and Helen Huang will take us on a poignant musical journey with local accompanist and WFU adjunct professor Dr. Yong Im Lee Federle. 

Piedmont Opera is proud to partner with the following departments at Wake Forest University:

  • Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures

  • Lam Museum of Anthropology

  • Department of Music

  • Interdisciplinary Humanities

  • Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

The Lam Museum of Anthropology will display a curated exhibit in the lobby of the Porter Byrum Welcome Center featuring Asian art and artifacts. A reception will take place in the lobby following the performance. 

This is a free event, but due to the high demand, we kindly request that you reserve your tickets in advance to secure your spot.
