West-Eastern Divan Ensemble

PROGRAM
SCHUBERT, Rondo in A, D. 438 for Violin and String Quartet
ATTAHIR, Solo for Violin and String Ensemble
MENDELSSOHN, String Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20

See the West-Eastern Divan Ensemble, led by the orchestra’s concertmaster Michael Barenboim, in their State Theatre debut! This world class ensemble features players from the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. The orchestra was founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said in 1999 as a workshop for Israeli, Palestinian, and other Arab musicians. Barenboim and Said materialized a hope to replace ignorance with education, knowledge, and understanding; to humanize the other; and to imagine a better future. Though this experiment in coexistence was intended as a one-time event, it quickly evolved into a legendary orchestra.

When: Sunday, March 1 , 3pm-5pm
Where: State Theatre New Jersey, 15 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick , NJ 08901
Ages: 10+
Cost: $17.50-$70
