Salon 21 - Soundstreams presents Middle Eastern Music

For the past 3 years, TML  has been checking out new contemporary classical music the Salon 21

It's a chance to learn about new music, hear from the composers, and get sound bites of full performances for FREE!

There's always interesting nibblies to munch on and inexpensive wine to enjoy while having our horizons broaden - if only for an hour :)

Tonight's event focuses on :

Instruments of the Middle East - Then & Now: Much of the music we enjoy today, and many of the instruments that are used to play it, sprang from a Middle Eastern tradition that stretches back 5,000 years. Take a trip back through the millennia and hear how our music has evolved from these ancient times.

Meet and Greet: 7:00 pm

Presentation starts: 7:30 pm, with live music and lots of time for questions
Please be there no later than 6:45, and we will go up to the 3rd floor to get some seats

Otherwise, look for me upstairs

    What a marvellous event....I learned so much...The santur is somewhat like a zither.

    Interesting to learn about both the music and the instruments ... The music itself was great - spiritual evocative.....

    it might have been bone chilling cold out tonight, but the music brought a gentle warmth to the soul, it was almost meditative in quality, lovely. we got to hear both classical and more contemporary Persian music played on santur, oud, tar and daf, by 2 extremely talented Persian musicians who now call Toronto home. many thanks to everyone who came out to partake in such an evening of excellence
