As one of its members aptly puts it, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is "a human laboratory that can express to the whole world how to cope with each other." Established in 1999 as a workshop for young musicians from Israel, Palestine, and other Arab countries, the group is celebrated for its interpretations of Beethoven, which exude "youthful gusto and enthusiasm" (The Independent, London). On this program, it performs Beethoven's symphonies nos. 2 and 9.

Venue Description: One of the most famous performance spaces in the world, and where the biggest orchestras in the world play when they come to New York City. They also offer neighborhood concerts throughout the year, tours of the historic halls, music programming, festivals, and more.
