POETICA MUSICA VISITS SYRIA AS AMBASSADORS OF GOOD WILL

The chamber music ensemble, Poetica Musica, has just completed a concert tour of Syria under the auspices of the United States Embassy in Damascus and the Syrian Ministry of Culture. The tour, which took place between March 24 and April 2, included concerts in Damascus as well as the provincial cities of Lattakia and Homs. Concerts were in conjunction with a series of events hosted by Ambassador Theodore Kattouf, United States Ambassador to Syria. As part of the visit, Poetica Musica members conducted masterclasses at the Higher Institute of Music, the principal music conservatory in Syria.

Poetica Musica members, Eleanor Valkenburg, soprano, and Nnenna Ogwo, pianist, performed a concert of American music which included works by Bernstein, Copland, Rorem and Amy Rubin, a contemporary composer currently residing in Seattle.. Masterclasses also emphasized the interpretation of American music.

Poetica Musica is a consortium of eight musicians who are currently Artists-in-Residence at Old Westbury Gardens, a stately mansion located on Long Island's North Shore. Individually and collectively, members have performed in such music festivals as the Tanglewood, Ravinia, Aspen, Jerusalem and Edinburgh festivals and with the Metropolitan, New York City Opera, Minnesota, Chicago and Houston Opera Companies. Members of Poetica Musica have performed at the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, the St-Martin-in-the-Fields and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Carnegie and Alice Tully Halls in New York and at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
