What a week for American University performing ensembles, huh? Looks like the absolute horror of finals season’s approach has inspired an impassioned response from the arts.
We already told you about our nite of jazz at “Jazz in the Fall” on Friday, but there’s another event coming even sooner: DPA professor and conductor Yaniv Dinur’s “A Little Night Music from Israel and America” tomorrow night!
This event is being put on in association with the Katzen museum as well as the AU Center for Israel Studies. Featuring our AU orchestra as well as performers Mary Voutsas on piano and Brian Prunka on oud (a fretless middle eastern string instrument), will follow Prof. Dinur’s journey from Israel to America, showcasing composers from both countries such as Ives and Cerrone from the U.S. and Weisenberg and Nebenhaus from Israel (both with the first name Menachem). Truly a unique assortment here!
This event will be tomorrow night (Thursday, 11/20) at 8pm in the Katzen Museum. It is free but you must RSVP. You can do that here, at the facebook event, and make sure to click “attending!” Hope to see you at this lovely night of exploring the musical and global progression of one of our beloved professors.
