“Formed in 1999, The Yuval Ron Ensemble endeavors to alleviate national, racial, religious and cultural divides by uniting the music and dance of the opposing people of the Middle East into a unique mystical, spiritual and inspiring musical celebration. The Ensemble includes Jewish, Arabic and Christian artists who have been actively involved in creating musical bridges between people of various faiths and ethnic groups worldwide.” (From The Yuval Ron Ensemble’s Mission Statement)
This year we are reflecting on conflict and peacemaking in the Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts and Humanities and I am struck again by the power of the arts to bring people together and give them an opportunity to be a community enjoying live performance. Live performance gives us an opportunity to witness an artist’s reflection on life and
weigh it against our own; an
opportunity to gather with friends and strangers and escape from the worries that we live with; and the chance to dissolve the walls that keep us separate by calling upon our shared humanity.
Please join us!
