Performance: Silkroad Ensemble

December 8 @ 7:30 pm

Six members of the Silkroad Ensemble celebrate their conviction that when people create music together, they listen to differences and create meaning from them. Artists inspired by traditions from across Asia, the Middle East, and Europe explore the power of radical cultural collaboration on stage, part a yearlong residency that began on the Freer|Sackler’s reopening weekend. Featured artists are Syrian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, bassist Jeffrey Beecher, violist Nicholas Cords, percussionists Haruka Fujii and Shane Shanahan, and Shaw Pong Liu on violin and erhu (Chinese fiddle).
