Connecting Chords Music Festival

Simon Shaheen

Sunday, November 11    7:00 PM

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church of Portage

Simon Shaheen dazzles his listeners as he deftly leaps from traditional Arabic sounds to jazz and Western classical styles. His soaring technique, melodic ingenuity, and unparalleled grace have earned him international acclaim as a virtuoso on the oud and violin.

One of the most significant Arab musicians, performers, and composers of his generation, Shaheen’s work incorporates and reflects a legacy of Arabic music, while it forges ahead to new frontiers. He'll be performing his Festival show with his trio.

His unique contribution to the world of arts was recognized in 1994 when Shaheen was honored with the prestigious National Heritage Award at the White House.
