KINAN AZMEH CityBand
Saturday, February 09, 2019
Begins at 7:30pm
The Arden Theatre | 5 St. Anne Street
JAZZ / WORLD / CLASSICAL
Presenting Kinan Azmeh’s CityBand is a coup for The Arden Theatre. A force on the international classical and world music scenes, this Syrian clarinet-playing composer came to the attention of a larger audience as a member of YoYo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble. Azmeh is also the artistic director of the Damascus Festival Chamber Players and a renowned soloist/improviser who has worked with the New York Philharmonic.
Live performances sweep across a shifting musical terrain and inspire rave reviews from sources like the New Yorker, that refer to Azmeh and company as “spellbinding.”
