    The 3rd Berklee Annual Middle Eastern Festival featuring Simon Shaheen

    On April 18th and 19th 2011, Berklee College of Music welcomes world-renowned oud and violin virtuoso Simon Shaheen for a residency that will include a masterclass, clinic and concert, as part of its 3rd Annual Middle Eastern Festival.

    During his visit, Simon Shaheen will work with the ensemble, and give a clinic (open to the public) in Cafe 939 from 2-4pm on April 19th. The residency will culminate in a BPC performance later that day, during which Shaheen will perform with the students, as well as solo and in small ensemble settings.

    The festival aims to showcase different styles and genres of Middle Eastern music as well as artists, and to bring together students from different musical and cultural backgrounds in experiencing this music.

    This event is sponsored by the Ensemble Department and the Diversity and Inclusion Office. It was founded and is directed by Berklee Voice Faculty Member Christiane Karam.
