Jennifer Koh and Davóne Tines
Everything That Rises Must Converge
“Jennifer Koh is one of our most important violinists not just because she’s a very fine soloist, but because she is a prolific commissioner of contemporary music.” The New York Times
“Davóne Tines has a depths-plumbing bass-baritone that can find a range of contradictions within a single note.” The New York Times
Recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance, violinist Jennifer Koh is a forward-thinking artist dedicated to exploring a broad and eclectic repertoire, while promoting diversity and inclusivity in classical music. Davóne Tines, deemed a “singer of immense power and fervor” by the Los Angeles Times and a “charismatic, full-voiced bass-baritone” by The New York Times, is building an international career commanding a broad spectrum of opera and concert performance. Their new collaboration, Everything That Rises Must Converge, was born from the shared desire of its co-creators to understand themselves as the children and descendants of refugees and slaves. By juxtaposing their personal family histories and examining how they influenced their artistry and development as classical musicians, Koh and Tines reveal a universal history shared by immigrants and minority Americans.
