The West-Eastern Divan Ensemble spreads the mission that opposing sides can build bridges and encourage people to imagine a better future.

Experience the healing power of music as artists from Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt perform together. Led by concertmaster Michael Barenboim, the group draws its members from the world-renowned West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in hopes of finding alternative ways to alleviate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The diverse program features music by Schubert, Mendelssohn, Tartini and young French composer Benjamin Attahir.

Schubert: Rondo in A Major, D. 438
Benjamin Attahir: Jawb for String Octet
Tartini: Violin Sonata in G Minor (“Devil’s Trill”)
Mendelssohn: String Octet in E-flat Major, op. 20
