About Us

Del Sol is a string quartet that thrives outside the concert hall.

“As an Asian American artist, this opportunity to showcase a history that has both a direct connection to my ethnicity as well as a global connection is incredibly empowering.”

— CHARLTON LEE, founder of the Del Sol String Quartet

Angel Island Insight: a suite of virtual & in-person programs

Del Sol Performing Arts Organization’s ANGEL ISLAND INSIGHT explores the history of the Angel Island Immigration Station by offering a suite of virtual and in-person programs that examines the musicality of the disappearing Hoisan-wa dialect by The Last Hoisan Poets and The Del Sol Quartet. Also, a mini-course of Angel Island’s poetic history in collaboration with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at San Francisco State University; and a community online art exhibit, “Angel Island: In Sight 2021.”

These presentations expanded public engagement with the premiere of composer Huang Ruo’s Angel Island – Oratorio for Voices and Strings at the Presidio Theatre and on Angel Island in October of 2021.

ANGEL ISLAND INSIGHT will continue to highlight the importance of community storytelling through the performance of contemporary musical works by Asian American composers, poetry by The Last Hoisan Poets exploring the musicality of the disappearing Hoisan-wa dialect, and the sharing of community stories and photographs.

This website serves as an educational resource for future performances of Angel Island Oratorio.

“Angel Island Insight” was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, with additional support from the Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center and North East Medical Services (NEMS). Visit www.calhum.org.
