The Program consists of:
Bayyat Orchestra (For students with one year experience)
Hijaz Orchestra (For Intermediate and Advanced Students)
Orchestra group lessons will be held once a week on Sundays following CAC Arabic School Calendar
“An orchestra is a community, a gathering of like-minded individuals with the aim of making music together as well as reinforcing the shared human values that make us a better society. At the Center for Arab Culture Youth’s Orchestra, students will benefit from studying with some of the best Arab musicians in the country, both privately and as a group, as well as being part of a dedicated ensemble that will prepare and perform Arab music from its traditional repertoire to its contemporary.
The future is in the hands of our youth. With the goal of preserving and integrating Arab music within the community, this orchestra will be an essential educational experience that will bring the youth closer to the roots of Arab music in both traditional and non-traditional formats. It will also be a space where they build their character, meet other peers, appreciate and play Arab music instruments and develop the skills they’ll need to become future leaders in their fields.”
-Layth Sidiq, CAC Youth’s Orchestra Director
