This program has been a year in planning, and NMW's impresario Phil Collins’ vision for this project is to emphasize the strong commonality that music has among different Middle Eastern, as well as Western cultures. Music has thrived in the human civilization as a unifier; an unspoken dialect that crosses cultural divides and surrenders hearts.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Mar 30th, 2016 8:58 PM
It is a peace-inspired concert that involves subjects of a broader, and more public-oriented nature, than what contemporary chamber music concerts usually feature.

Two FREE community lecture/performances by Guest Artists Eitan Steinberg and Etty BenZaken offered Friday, April 15th, 8PM at Temple Beth El and again April 16, at 7PM, just before the concert.
