This intimate concert features members of the renowned West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, a group comprised of Arab and Israeli musicians defying fierce political divides in the Middle East and globally. Founded in 1999, the origins of the orchestra lie in the friendship between its founders, Palestinian author and scholar Edward Said and Israeli conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim. In their conversations, they realized the urgent need for an alternative way to address the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This evolved into the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra that global audiences know today. The Ensemble will perform works by Schubert, Brahms, and Mendelssohn as well as new work by Benjamin Attahir. Pre-performance talk in the lobby at 6:30 p.m.
$50, $35; Five College Students and Youth 17 & Under: $20, $10
