Where Rivers Meet: Songs and Stories from Masters of Arabic Music. This show celebrates the cultural contributions of immigrants from the Middle East. The show features three musicians who live in the Chicago area: Amro Helmy, an oud player from Cairo, Egypt; Edward Hanna, a percussionist from Basra, Iraq; and Mary Hazboun, a vocalist from Bethlehem, Palestine. The three master musicians will perform with a small ensemble and with a storyteller. The storyteller will narrate the personal stories of the three featured musicians, bringing to life the cultural context and memories behind the music, including stories of political persecution and the experience of immigration.
