About The Event

Using resonance as its governing principle, ElSaffar’s 17-member ensemble incorporates elements of maqam modal music of the Middle East with jazz and other contemporary musical practices to create a unique microtonal musical environment that moves beyond the notions of style and tradition into a realm of uninhibited musical communication. The ensemble features musicians from all over the world and a broad spectrum of traditions, from maqam to American jazz.

$33–$45; CMA members $30–40

These programs made possible in part by the Ernest L. and Louise M. Gartner Fund, the P. J. McMyler Musical Endowment Fund, and the Anton and Rose Zverina Music Fund.
