Twentieth Annual Arabic Music Retreat

The Twentieth Annual Arabic Music Retreat
will be held from August 7-14, 2016
at Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts.

Simon Shaheen invites students, performers, and scholars of Arabic music to the Twentieth Annual Arabic Music Retreat at Mount Holyoke College. The Retreat is honored to present an accomplished faculty roster including Associate Director Dr. A.J. Racy. This year we welcome back Charbel Rouhana from Lebanon.

The Retreat includes seven days of Arabic music instruction in both chamber music and large orchestra performance. The Retreat also offers private lessons and classes in Arabic music theory, analysis, and ear training. The structured format, along with the relaxed academic atmosphere of Mount Holyoke's beautiful rural campus, makes the Retreat an ideal setting for the serious study of Arabic music.

The registration materials are not available yet. We will make them available here and will announce the opening of registration on our e-mail list and in our facebook group (see below).
