 ,   Add to calendar
 Princeton  See map

Join us for a special concert in Mathey College Common Room, followed by a reception and the opening of the exhibition Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe. The concert highlights eighth- through fifteenth-century culture in Al-Andalus, a golden era of intellectual and artistic exchange among Christian, Islamic, and Jewish cultures. With members of the Philadelphia-based North African takht ensemble Al-Bustan, the Princeton Singers explore Arabic and Sephardic influences on music in medieval Europe through poetry, music, and a lecture-demonstration by Steven Sametz and Hannah Khoury, director of Al-Bustan. Free tickets to Ornament of the World will be available at the door, through Princeton University Ticketing (609-258-9220).


The concert will take place in the Mathey College Common Room with a reception following in the Art Museum.
