Healing with Music

About the Event

Home Within is an audio-visual project of Syrian composer and clarinetist, Kinan Azmeh, and Syrian-Armenian visual artist, Kevork Mourad. In this work, art and music develop in counterpoint to each other, creating an impressionistic reflection on the Syrian revolution and its aftermath. Created with the intention of raising awareness for Syrian refugees, this work features original music by the clarinetist with live illustration depicting specific moments in Syria’s recent history. In addition to performing Home Within, the two artists — both members of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble — will join award-winning international correspondent for National Public Radio, Deborah Amos, to discuss the impact of war on our sense of “home,” and how they use image and sound to establish a sense of sustained urgency and continued hope for both their homeland and communities around the world.
