“Borderless Arts Tennessee is honored to have the opportunity to showcase BoumJun Bae in Sumner County. We are deeply grateful to Eben Appleton as she is the force behind this visit. Ms. Appleton became associated with BoumJun Bae due to her work with the Teach North Korean Refugees program. Ms. Appleton approached Borderless Arts Tennessee because BoumJun Bae is a musician with an intellectual disability. This performance exemplifies what Borderless Arts TN is all about…..being borderless.”
The performance will also highlight Borderless Arts Tennessee’s Young Soloist winner, Drew Basham on keyboards.
The performances will be followed by a reception meet and greet to be able to meet both of the young artists. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.borderlessartstn.org.
