Ghadan (Tomorrow), from Hakawaty (The Storyteller) Suite for Orchestra had its Americas Premiere on April 27th by the wonderful UNC Charlotte Orchestra, conducted by Dr. Jonathan Andrew Govias. This fabulous performance was part of the Symphony of Diversity concert, which featured diverse orchestral works from around the world. So honoured to have been part of this fantastic concert!
My piano piece 'Sospiro', composed in one sitting in 2005 as a result of being homesick for Syria, will be performed by talented pianist Yuemeng Li at this wonderful concert organized by Naomi Hodson to benefit 'Help Refugees'. The concert will also feature works by Kinan Azmehand Shalan Alhamwy. April 8th, save the date! Tickets can be purchased here. To listen to it performed by me along with photos I took of Damascus, watch the video below.
