Coming events

Graduates Recitals 9-11.8
Final performances of third-year students graduating this year are held in the khan in the evening.
Every year there are several performance evenings that constitute the graduation project of third year students. Each student puts on a half-hour performance that is a summary of his artistic path in Maqamat, which he conducts musically. The show is attended by his classmates and guest musicians of his choice. As a whole, the recital performances are very stylistically and artistically diverse evenings, with each student choosing to perform a repertoire from traditions close to his heart, in new arrangements and orchestras as well as original works. The work on the recital is accompanied by a member of Maqamat’s teaching staff – veteran musician Yair Dalal.

Arabesque Festival – Performance Ensemble Maqamat 24.8
Arabesque is a festival of classical and Andalusian Arabic music.
From the site of Old Acre: The Arabesque Festival miraculously elevates authentic Mediterranean music. The music that will be played at the festival is music that many residents grew up on. The sounds of Darbuka alongside the oud, played the glorious culture of the Arab-Arab countries living within us. Oriental music has undergone many incarnations and changes over the years, so that today every person, regardless of their origin, recognizes it and its value and enjoys it. “Music surpasses all noise,” said French poet Theophile Gauthier, and indeed the Arabesque Festival illustrates the power of music to connect nations, religions, peoples.
