Berklee World Strings and Berklee Indian Ensemble: Bright Colors on a Dark Canvas
Nothing has touched the collective musical imagination of our community more than the plight of friends and families forced to leave their ancestral homes. Bright Colors on a Dark Canvas evokes the experiences of displaced people with original music, stories, and responses from Berklee students and alumni. The evening will feature premieres of work by cellist Naseem Alatrash (Palestine), vocalist Nano Raies (Syria), and lauto virtuoso Vasileios Kostas (Greece), along with a full menu of original collaborations featuring strings and voices.
Berklee World Strings is directed by Eugene Friesen, and the Berklee Indian Ensemble is directed by Annette Philip.
