Kinan Azmeh’s CityBand
- This event has passed.
“[Azmeh’s] rhapsodic clarinet [is] able to seduce with a rare intimacy and explode in ecstasy.” – Los Angeles Times
Perhaps best known as a member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, Kinan Azmeh is equally astounding for his virtuosity on clarinet and his versatility as composer, improviser, and band leader. His polished and pulse-quickening CityBand (featuring guitar, double bass, and percussion) lives and breathes its musical roots—spanning jazz, contemporary, folk, and classical music—alongside the deeply resonant musical influences of Azmeh’s own Syrian homeland.
Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible in part through the generous support of the Galena-Yorktown Foundation.
