Featuring a rogram to begin with Bahraini Oud Musician Isa Najem, winner of Best Original Music Score by the Los Angeles Cinematography Awards and the Canadian Cinematography Award for the film, Florence, a turning point in his career leading to his creating more original film music. Isa Najem holds international awards for oud performances and studies cello with Zuill Bailey. Following the World Music opening is Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons featuring violinist Helen Hwaya Kim with a chamber group of musicians (Kelly Farris and Julia Salerno, violin; David Armstrong, viola; Isa Najem, cello; and Patrick McNally, double bass.)
