The Asian American Orchestra will help the Presidio Officers’ Club put the “life” back into live music with a free evening performance that will be the world premiere of GO FOR BROKE! A Salute to Nisei Veterans. Dr. Anthony Brown and the Asian American Orchestra are grateful to partner with the Presidio Trust and InterMusic SF to bring this music to the public for the first time. GO FOR BROKE! A Salute to Nisei Veterans is the Asian American Orchestra’s musical commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the 1942 signing of Executive Order 9066 (EO9066) that forced over 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry into desolate internment camps until the end of World War II. Commissioned by the Zellerbach Family Foundation, GO FOR BROKE! honors the courageous Nisei (second-generation Japanese in America) soldiers who fought valiantly in WWII while their families remained imprisoned.

About Presidio Sessions
Music ranges from jazz to classical music from around the world, and are curated by San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music in partnership with the Presidio Trust. In the intimate atmosphere of a house concert, listeners can savor, lounge and learn as they wish. Guests move comfortably between Arguello, the destination restaurant and bar, and the performances in Moraga Hall, with opportunities to converse with performers and each other.
