Barenboim brings Middle East ensemble to Chicago Nov. 5 @ Symphony Center

Barenboim brings Middle East ensemble to Chicago Nov. 5

Daniel Barenboim will bring his Middle East ensemble, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, to Chicago on Monday, November 5, 2018 for a one-night concert performance.

In 1999, Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said founded the West-Eastern Divan as a workshop for Israeli, Palestinian and other Arab musicians. Meeting in Weimar, Germany – a place where the humanistic ideals of the Enlightenment are overshadowed by the Holocaust – they materialized a hope to replace ignorance with education, knowledge and understanding; to humanize the other; to imagine a better future.

Within the workshop, individuals who had only interacted with each other through the prism of war found themselves living and working together as equals. As they listened to each other during rehearsals and discussions, they traversed deep political and ideological divides. Though this experiment in coexistence was intended as a one-time event, it quickly evolved into a legendary orchestra.

You can order tickets by clicking here.
