Who We Are
WHO WE ARE
The NY Arabic Orchestra is comprised of 40 musicians as diverse as the city itself, hailing from multiple cultural, musical and educational backgrounds yet united by their love of Arabic music and passion for Arab culture. Since 2007, the NYAO fine-tuned its sound and composition in Arabic, Western and modern music contexts, earning them invitations to Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, Columbia University's Miller Theatre, Merkin Hall and Detroit Symphony Hall. In education, the NYAO was invited around the world to host lectures and workshops at universities, public schools, cultural centers and refugee camps.
