The Rose Ensemble: Land of Three Faiths

"This program wasn't a performance. It was more like a resurrection." - Ames Life & Times

The result of years of intensive research and training, "Land of Three Faiths: Voices of Ancient Mediterranean Jews, Christians, and Muslims" is at once sacred, secular, folk, and classical, embarking on a fascinating exploration of language, spirituality, and cultural exchange.

Featuring instruments and musical ideas that blur the lines between Arabic and European, this entertaining and enlightening program is steeped in the rich history of the Abrahamic faiths, achieving a perfect balance of edgy improvisation, exotic vocal styles, and ancient traditions. View the program and performance notes here.

There will also be a free lecture recital on Tuesday, April 19 at 2 p.m. in the Squires Recital Salon about the process of creating “Land of Three Faiths.”

Co-sponsored by the Malcolm and Diane Rosenberg Program in Judaic Studies in the the Department of Religion and Culture , the School of Performing Arts, and the Residential College at West Ambler Johnston at Virginia Tech.
