Hanna St. John, owner of Bellydance America, supports the local Arabic music scene by singing in the choir for the New York Arabic Orchestra. The orchestra has held performances in many venues including Symphony Space, Lincoln Center and, most recently, Florence Gould Hall – Alliance Françiase. The repertory consists of both traditional pieces of music as well as original works by its artistic director, Bassam Saba.
The New York Arabic Orchestra is dedicated to providing education in classical Arabic music. They will be hosting a series of workshops in New York City and Boston, not to be missed by anyone passionate about this style of music.
