Celebrating Music from Syria and Egypt

May 6 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Syrian musicians Issam Rafea, oud, and Omar al Musfi, percussion, join Maya Shiraishi, violin, and Tom Clowes, cello, to celebrate music by composers from Syria and Egypt. The ensemble will present original works composed by Rafea, Sufi-inspired violin solos by Abdo Dagher, and the violin-cello duo of Gamal Abdel-Rahim, whose music combines Egyptian modal scales, rhythms, and melodies with European-inspired harmonies.
