New York Arabic Orchestra
Every Thursday evening of November 2018 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., you can take a course about Arabic performance and music. Megan Gould and Brian Prunka will teach the class. This class is for intermediate to advanced musicians and music students. All instruments are welcome, but there are only 10 seats available per section.
In December, after the course, you will be able to play along with members of the NY Arabic Orchestra in a concert.
Prunka is an oudest, guitarist, and composer from New Orleans. He began to study Arabic music 20 years ago when he was taught how to play the oud at Simon Shaheen’s Arabic Music Retreat.
Gould completed a Master’s degree in ethnomusicology with a concentration on the Middle East and is known as one of N.Y.’s most versatile performers of Arabic music. She has played in concerts around the world.
You can purchase tickets here. Each ticket costs $160 with an additional $8.09 fee.
