The Middle East Music Ensemble is proud to present another year of back-to-back Persian Concerts! Doors open at 6:30 Saturday and 3:30 Sunday. While we've expanded to two concerts to accommodate our large crowds, seats will still be very limited, so be sure to arrive early to secure a spot! Please note that while both concerts are free and will have the same program, the Sunday concert is earlier (both are also kid-friendly)! Admission is free with suggested donations at the door. Also, if your ears are just longing for a sneak peek of this concert (we understand), we just launched our Instagram account with behind-the-scenes photos and videos from rehearsals! www.instagram.com/memechicago - tell your friends! -- Middle East Music Ensemble (MEME) the University of Chicago is a 45 piece orchestra that was established by the Music Department in 1997, to provide a performance space in which theoretical, practical and historical interests in Middle Eastern music could be explored, and performers from across the university and the neighboring community could share their expertise and learn from one another. The Ensemble is directed by renowned Palestinian musician Wanees Zarour.
