At the Crossroads: Music & Culture of the Middle East

The Yuval Ron Ensemble—featuring Arab vocalist Najwa Gibran, Whirling Dervish Aziz, Armenian Duduk master Yegish Manukian—includes Arab and Jewish artists who come together to celebrate the musical traditions of Judaism, Sufism, and the Christian Armenian Church. Composer and world-music producer Yuval Ron orchestrates the deep inter-cultural connection between these three traditions and the musical influences they share. The concert will feature songs of Sufi origin from Turkey, Jewish prayers from Morocco, Yemen, and Israel, as well as Armenian church chants. With the presence of Whirling Dervish Aziz, this program will be a feast for the senses!

Event is free of charge. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Preferential seating to students (with ID).
