W&M Middle Eastern Music Ensemble


The W&M Middle Eastern Music Ensemble presents a small offering from Fall 2020.

Masked, socially distanced, and all zoomed out, we adapted our live performance for this recorded format.

Many thanks to W&M senior, Caecilia Armstrong.  Her video about the process of producing our little performance is worth the watch as well.
