Program: 

The future generation of eastern art music—outstanding students from the Department of Eastern Music at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance—will present works from the Arabic classical repertoire alongside original contemporary works. These compositions demand deep awareness of Arabic classical tradition and style, but also require an element of freshness and innovation in performance.

The musical journey of these outstanding students will begin with the great Egyptian composers, such as Muhammad Abd al-Wahab and Muhammad al-Qasabgi, continuing with works from Turkey, and will conclude with works by contemporary local masters such as Naseem Dakwar, and fascinating original works by department students and graduates.
