The Golden Gate Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will present Ask The Sky & The Earth, an Oratorio-Cantata for the Sent-Down Youth this Saturday night. It’s a musical recollection of the period during Mao’s Cultural Revolution, when most of the young people in cities were sent out to the countryside to be ‘educated’ by rural farmers and workers. Music Director Urs Leonhardt Steiner and soprano soloist Yi Han Triplett (who was one such youth herself) give a preview.
