Apollo Chamber Players presents Music of Exile. A cross-cultural, millennia-spanning program of diasporic new music inspired by composers seeking to illuminate our individual and collective histories.
Music of Exile features newly commissioned music by Syrian-American composer Malek Jandali, Israeli-born composer Gilad Cohen, and the world premiere of "Distant Shores" by Rice University faculty composer Richard Lavenda with special guest bassoonist Benjamin Kamins; a work inspired by the Sephardic Ladino tradition.
Venezuelan virtuoso violinist Eddy Marcano joins Apollo for an exploration of his country’s vibrant folk music, which has spread around the world in recent years.
This concert is sponsored by Rice University's Jewish Studies Program and the Boniuk Institute for Religious Tolerance.
