The Asian American Composers & Lyricists Project was founded in 2011 by writer/singer Christine Toy Johnson to nurture and present works created and sung by Asian American theatre artists. In 2014, with the support of the Puffin Foundation and the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, members of the project collectively wrote a song cycle called "Arriving in Asian America". The world premiere of this concert was performed at Symphony Space in New York City on December 8, 2014.
