03/30/08: Visiting Artist Series - “Middle Eastern Cultures in Perfect Harmony”

Mar 04, 2008

The final Visiting Artist Series concert for the spring semester at Delaware Valley College will be presented at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 30, in the college's Student Center Auditorium with a concert titled "Middle Eastern Cultures in Perfect Harmony."

Presented by Intercultural Journeys, the concert will feature Philadelphia Orchestra cellist and Israeli native, Udi Bar-David, Arab-Israeli violinist Hanna Khoury, Margot Leverett on klezmer clarinet; Syrian-born Kareem Roustom, on ‘ūd (a guitar-like Arab instrument) and percussionist Rolando Morales Matos on hand drums. The musicians have risen above the conflict in their homelands to create music together and were featured together in the documentary, 'Music from the Inside Out,' during the Philadelphia Orchestra's 2007 season. Inspired by visits to Arab, Jewish and Buddhist villages, Intercultural Journeys explores and celebrates the commonalities and unique elements of each heritage, which, in turn, creates an opportunity for dialogue.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for students and senior citizens. A special admission rate of $25 is available for families. For more information, contact Dr. Jack W. Schmidt at 215-489-2233.

The Visiting Artist Series at Delaware Valley College is dedicated to presenting high quality, entertaining and educational programs that are suitable for the entire family.
