Rose Ensemble performs at The Phipps
HUDSON — The Rose Ensemble will perform “Land of Three Faiths: Voices of Ancient Mediterranean Jews, Christians and Muslims” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, at The Phipps Center for the Arts, 109 Locust St.
The Rose Ensemble was founded in 1996 and has achieved international recognition with ten commercial recordings and a diverse selection of concert programs.
“Land of Three Faiths” is the result of years of research and training. It is an exploration of language, spirituality and cultural exchange featuring instruments that blur the lines between Arabic and European.
The performance highlights the Hispano-Arabic Middle Ages as they relate to Judaic, Christian and Islamic history, Arab-Andalusian dances and Spanish court songs, Hebrew cantillation and Gregorian chant.
The show also coincides with The Phipps’ current exhibit featuring three artists titled “In This Place: What Makes a Place Holy?,” which will also be on view in the gallery.
Tickets to The Rose Ensemble’s performance are $28 for adults and $21 for students. They can be purchased by calling 715-386-8409 or visiting thephipps.org.
