Only Here Podcast: The San Diego Symphony Makes Music About Migration
Leaving one country for another isn't easy. The transition can be challenging and emotional.
And especially for the kids who cross, legally or not, those emotions can be intense.
In this episode, we dissect a new classical music composition commissioned by the San Diego Symphony that explores what immigration feels like for kids.
We also drop by the place where the border fence runs into the Pacific Ocean. The symphony has organized performances on both sides of the border here. It's a place with long history of serving as a backdrop for music and art focused on the border and immigration.
Only here is the symphony bringing together a composer and a poet to make music about kids crossing borders.
