At Home Around the World
Amram: At Home Around the World
A Musical Mosaic with David Amram and Friends Celebrating the Spirit of Diaspora
Tuesday 3rd November 2009, 8:00 PM - Venue
A part of Land and Conflict Program

An evening of music and dance from the Middle East with Arab, Jewish, Iranian, Afghan, and Pakistani influences.

One of America's true Renaissance musicians, Amram celebrates the Toronto debut of The Frontier Gandhi, the documentary for which he has composed the soundtrack. A rare opportunity to experience an artist who counts Charles Mingus, Charlie Parker and Jack Kerouac among his peers 'Amram was multicultural before multiculturalism existed.' - New York Times

For over fifty years, composer and writer David Amram has composed orchestral and chamber music works, written many scores for Broadway theatre and film, including the scores for Splendor in The Grass and The Manchurian Candidate; the groundbreaking Holocaust opera The Final Ingredient; and the score for the landmark 1959 documentary Pull My Daisy, narrated by novelist Jack Kerouac. He recently collaborated with the late Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes) on Missa Manhattan and completed the score for Teri McLuhan's documentary, Frontier Gandhi, which opens the International Diaspora Film Festival.

Presented in association with Small World Music.
