‘Music in Exile’

Presented by Accentus Music

While music in exile might not be a new phenomenon, it has changed over the years – and while social media + global connectivity have made the world seemingly smaller, the song remains much the same. 

Violinist Daniel Hope and opera + film director Oksana Taranenko will reflect on exile hubs, the effects on emigré artists and their music, and share personal experiences.
