« All Events

This ensemble features an octet of players drawn from the larger West-Eastern Divan Orchestra of Seville, Spain. Established to give young musicians the opportunity to promote coexistence and intercultural dialogue as an alternative solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the orchestra draws musicians from countries in the Middle East with Egyptian, Iranian, Israeli, Jordanian, Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian, and Spanish heritage. Coming to the U.S. for only the second time since its formation, the chamber group is led by violinist Michael Barenboim, a dynamic soloist who has appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony.

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
