Please join the UCSB Middle East Ensemble as we present our formal Fall concert on Saturday, November 19th, 2022, in UCSB’s Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall.  The concert will begin at 7:30 pm.

We are excited to feature 2 songs that the superstar Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum (c.1900 - 1975) premiered in 1972 (one with Steven Thomson, solo vocalist, the other with our chorus), thus celebrating the songs’ 50th anniversary, and an extended solo dance finale featuring guest dancer, Kali Sundari. We will also present 2 Kurdish songs featuring our new Kurdish grad student, Fidel Kilic; two Persian songs performed by Javid John; and an early-20th-century Egyptian song featuring Andrea Fishman.

General ($10); Senior/Military/Non-UCSB students with ID ($7); UCSB students with ID and children under 12 (FREE)
