Clarinet Studio with special guests The Light of East Ensemble
Friday, November 26, 202
6:00pm, von Kuster Hall*
*internal audience only. No public or non-Music Western community admittance. Access to Music Building by authorized card-swipe access only for Music students, faculty, staff and Music Library staff.

Don Wright Faculty of Music clarinet students perform a concert to support cultural acceptance, encourage inclusivity over hate, and to remember the London family killed in a racist, anti-Muslim attack this past spring. We stand with Western and with the Muslim and London community in condemning acts of hate and violence.

In the spirit of diversifying cultural and musical experience, students join London's own, The Light of East Ensemblefor an evening of music from the Near and Middle East. Together, they will perform folk and Classical Arabic works, styles from disparate cultures such as Sephardic music and Greek Rembetika, and traditional forms from Armenia, Greece (Asia Minor – Smyrni and Konstantinoupoli), Turkey, Egypt, Iraq and Israel.

The Light of East Ensemble is Panayiotis Giannarapis (oud, bouzouki), Mary Ashton (violin), Jedd House (contra basso), Tracey Atin (vocals), Joel Jacobs (percussion) and typically Jana Starling (clarinet).
