As it has grown, the NAO has promoted diversity and educational initiatives as part of its mission, including a visit to San Antonio in January by the NAO’s smaller Takht Ensemble, which performed with YOSA during this year’s DreamWeek celebration.
Now the full ensemble brings its latest program to San Antonio: “On the Shoulders of Giants: Arab Women in Music.” The performance, which premiered in Detroit earlier this year, features prominent female Arab vocalists and artists and commemorates the contributions of women to Arab music and culture across millennia.
$25-$50, Sat Nov. 10, 7:30pm, Trinity University, Laurie Auditorium, One Trinity Pl., (210) 999-8117, araborchestra.org.
