New York Arabic Orchestra
New York, NY
Every Thursday evening in October, you can study Arabic music by analyzing the performances and styles of the pieces with the help of instructors Megan Gould and Brian Prunka. This is a prerequisite for those who want to join the New York Arabic Orchestra. All instruments are welcome, but only 10 spots are available per section.
The goal of the class is to be able to play with the organization’s main orchestra at a concert in December.
Gould is a renowned performer of Arabic music who has traveled the world. She also received her Master’s degree in ethnomusicology with a concentration in the Middle East.
Prunka is a guitarrist, oudist, and composer from New Orleans. He began to study Arabic music 20 years ago when he started playing the oud.
You can purchase tickets here. One costs $160 with an $8.09 extra fee.
