Dal’ Ouna Ensemble Concert

Join us for the Dal' Ouna Ensemble concert on Wednesday, March 7. The concert, which features the powerful music of Ramzi Aburedwan and his Arabic-French ensemble, is a fusion of Palestinian folk, classical and jazz music.

The evening also includes a talk by the award-winning author and journalist, Sandy Tolan. His book, Children of the Stone, tells the dramatic story of Ramzi Aburedwan's life growing up in a Palestinian refugee camp. Aburedwan went on to realize his dream of founding the music school Al-Kamandjati, which had centers in Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon. The book conveys Aburedwan's belief in the power of music to transform lives and resist oppression. There will be a book signing at the end of the concert.
