Arab American National Museum
Global Fridays keeps the momentum going with Iraqi-born, Grammy Award-nominated artist and composer Rahim AlHaj, who is making a stop at the Arab American National Museum at 8 p.m. Friday, March 24 to perform his 2017 recording Letters from Iraq. AlHaj’s music delicately combines traditional Iraqi melodies with contemporary styling and influence. His compositions underline the experience of exile from his homeland and of new beginnings in his adopted country. The event features members of the award-winning Michigan Philharmonic, who, with AlHaj, will paint musical scenes of pain, redemption and hope. Tickets to Global Friday performances are $10 for AANM Members and $15 general public. Get them in advance online; also available at the door.
