Next Concert in UBS Atrium Series to Feature Kinan Azmeh's CityBand
 
Weehawken, Hudson County, NJ, events, concerts, live music, HRPAC
 

The Hudson Riverfront Performing Arts Center will present its next concert in this season's UBS Atrium Series featuring Kinan Azmeh's CityBand. This free mid-day concert takes place on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 12:30 pm, in the Atrium at 1000 Harbor Boulevard in the Lincoln Harbor section of Weehawken, New Jersey.

Hailed as a "virtuoso" and "intensely soulful" by The New York Times and "spellbinding" by the New Yorker, Kinan Azmeh's distinctive sound bridging different musical genres has gained him international recognition.

Kinan has been touring the world as soloist, composer, and improviser. Notable appearances include: Carnegie Hall, Opera Bastille, Tchaikovsky Grand Hall, Royal Albert Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Mozarteum, and the Damascus Opera House for its opening concert in his native Syria.

He has appeared as soloist with the New York Philharmonic, the Seattle Symphony, the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, the Qatar Philharmonic, and the Syrian Symphony Orchestra, among others. Kinan has shared the stage with Marcel Khalife, Aynur, Daniel Barenboim and Jivan Gasparian. He is also a member of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble with whom he was awarded a Grammy earlier this year.

Formed in 2006 in New York City, the Kinan Azmeh CityBand immediately gained recognition for its virtuosic and high energy performances, which have consistently received praise from critics and audiences alike. The band strives to reach a balance between classical music, jazz, and the music of Kinan's homeland, Syria. His expressive clarinet beautifully compliments Kyle Sanna's rustic guitar, at times soaring over the dynamic and volatile backdrop of John Hadfield's percussion and Josh Myers' double bass. Each band member brings his unique perspective, talent, and personal flair to the ensemble, which results in a thoroughly exciting and rewarding listening experience.

In support of the group's CD, Elastic City, the band toured the US, Canada, France, England, Germany, Holland, Egypt, Lebanon, and Turkey.
