LUNATICS AT LARGE @ Tufts University

@ 7:00 PM
Tufts University, Distler Hall
Nearer to East: Contemporary Chamber Music from the Arab World & Beyond
Featuring music by Karim Al-Zand, Kinan Azmeh, Bushra El-Turk, Mohammed
Fairouz, Zaid Jabri & Kareem Roustom
Lunatics at Large, the renowned New York City-based new music ensemble,
will bring this exciting and unique program to Tufts University on their
first visit to the area. Hailed by the New York Times as “…young,
energetic, and finely polished,” Lunatics at Large will explore music by
composers who live and work in the U.S.A. and Europe but have strong ties
to the Arab world. Avoiding exotic and orientalist cliches, this
thoughtful program brings together a collection of passionate, eloquent,
and bold works by a group of composers whose music both reflects the past
and speaks in the idioms of the present.
Distler Performance Hall. Tickets are free with a Tufts ID card (limit two
per ID) and $10 for general admission. Call 617.627.3679 for tickets. This
concert has been made possible by the Granoff Music Fund.
