Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM CST
Event Description:

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2020 – 7:30 P.M. Presented in cooperation with the Dubuque Arts Council Shesh Besh is a model of mutual respect in a turbulent, violent Middle East seeking an elusive balance of East and West through music while embodying two cultures living together in harmony. Shesh Besh is comprised of two members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra alongside three of the finest musicians from Israel’s Arab community.

Instrumentation will include violin, oud, flute, double bass, and percussion (deff and darbuka). Musically, the ensemble reflects a multicultural context of classical Western music, classical Eastern works, and original compositions. www.pmiarts.com

Free 30-minute special lecture precedes the performance at 6:30 p.m. in Babka Theatre. Shesh Besh is made possible, in part, by the William P. Woodward Visiting Artist-in-Residence Endowment. This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, which is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts with additional contributions from the Iowa Arts Council.
