The UCSB Middle East Ensemble is superb, and the music is glorious. Director Dr. Scott Marcus has scheduled a concert for November 20, 2021 in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m.
The Ensemble’s musicians, dancers, and soloists will celebrate traditional music from the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and throughout the Mediterranean region. The UCSB Ensemble talent is comparable to famous Middle Eastern performers in their own countries. These gifted artists have been invited to perform in Egypt more than once. This cultural experience is not on PBS or commercial television. It is only on TVSB Media Access Arts Center.
Recording and televising this concert of Middle Eastern and Eastern European music requires funds of at least $700. A sponsor must be found and/or donations raised.
Please send donations to Executive Director Erik Davis at TVSB Media Access Arts Center, 329 South Salinas Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. Also, you can make donations via the GoFundMe account at this link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/2z3sc6-ucsb-middle-east-ensemble-on-tvsb.
