Maine Middle Eastern Orchestra returns with a program honoring the late ud master, Alan Shavarsh Bardezbanian. Join us for a unique opportunity to experience traditional Armenian and Anatolian folk music in an orchestral setting, performed by leading members of Maine’s vibrant Middle Eastern music community. A community that largely exists because of the legacy Udi Alan Shavarsh Bardezbanian left behind.

Also joining the performance is the legendary Armenian ud player, Mal Barsamian! 

Maine Middle Eastern Orchestra is made up of music faculty members from Bowdoin, Bates and Colby Colleges, as well as musicians from the world renowned New York Arab Orchestra, DaPonte String Quartet, Okbari Middle Eastern Ensemble, Seyir Duo and the Casco Bay Tummlers.
