    For more than a decade, American media has maintained a focus on the Middle East so often through a negative lens which obscures the beautiful culture of the people. In this concert, the Charles River Wind Ensemble explores the music of this culturally rich part of the world. With the help of Christopher Marshall and Pulitzer prize-winning composer David DelTredici, we look into this region from the American perspective, musically depicting reactions to our experiences of the early 2000s. In contrast, we turn to Charles Fernandez and Kenneth Hesketh to offer us modern interpretations of the gorgeous folk music from this area. Join us as we expand our musical palette and explore this radiant and complex music.
