Musicians from Syria to perform in historic Heritage Hall on WMU campus
Date(s) - Tuesday, November 01, 2016
Heritage Hall, WMU
A trio of Syrian musicians on voice, oud, and percussion offer a varied repertoire, rooted in the richly diverse musical heritage of the Arab Middle East. This comprises the most renowned historical and contemporary composers, as well as original compositions by the trio’s members. Their music is steeped in cultural heritage, modern and sleek in presentation, yet also nuanced, soulful, and authentic.
This ticketed event is open to all and recent refugees from Syria will be the special guest of the Michigan Festival of Sacred music.
At the beautifully restored Heritage Hall, Western Michigan University; Nov. 1, 7 p.m.; $15/$5
