Guest Artists An-Lin Bardin, cello and Naomi Niskala, piano will give a recital. Free and open to the public.

The Bardin-Niskala Duo is a classical cello and piano duo comprised of cellist An-Lin Bardin and pianist Naomi Niskala. An-Lin and Naomi met while living and teaching in New Haven, CT, shortly after they finished their studies at the Yale School of Music. An-Lin is of Chinese-American heritage, and Naomi is of Japanese-American heritage. They have been playing together in their piano trio (Trio Kisosen) since 2016, and formed the Bardin-Niskala Duo in early 2021 in response to the increasing racial violence and hate crimes across the United States. An-Lin and Naomi began approaching ALAANA composers to ask them to use their music to address their sense of identity – to celebrate their racial heritages, to tackle historical or current events in race conflict, or to start the journey towards discovering where and how they belong.
