Community MusicWorks hosts Syrian composer and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, hailed as a “virtuoso” by the New York Times and “spellbinding” by The New Yorker, for a multi-day residency, featuring performances of works for strings and clarinet by Syrian composers, including Azmeh himself.
This community conversation, presented in partnership with the Providence Public Library, links the concert to the ongoing Syrian crisis. The panel features composers Kinan Azmeh and Kareem Roustom along with representatives from Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island, which provides ongoing support to Syrian refugees in Rhode Island. Providence Public Library’s Programs & Exhibitions Director Christina Bevilacqua will moderate.
