Light of the Blind 

Wesleyan University's Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life and Yale University present Light of the Blind, a series of workshops, colloquia, and concert performances. The project aims to create a deeper awareness and understanding of the healing possibilities of music for those struggling in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, and to offer a forum for conversations between American and Vietnamese-American communities. The Vietnamese practice of Xẩm singing will inform the discussion, as audience and performers collaborate on cross-cultural musical experiences.

Organized by the Wesleyan University Music Department and Yale University’s Council on South​east​ Asia Studies. Supported by Wesleyan’s Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life Collaborative Project, College of East Asian Studies, and Center for the Arts.

Following these events at Wesleyan will be performances on Friday October 6 at Yale University’s Luce Hall, Saturday October 7 at Harvard University, and Thursday October 12 at Cornell University.
