The Immigrant Story Live kicks off with a musical performance, featuring a collaboration between Masumi Timson, a renowned musician of the koto, one of Japan's most treasured instruments; and Fumino Ando, a reputed Oregon Symphony violinist from Japan. Next, four storytellers from across the globe will share unique stories about the arduous and frequently dangerous journeys that brought them to the United States.
