Daniel Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (West Coast Debut)

Sat Nov 10, 2018 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Zellerbach Hall
Program: R. Strauss/Don Quixote, Op. 35 Tchaikovsky/Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64 Nearly 20 years ago, Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim and Palestinian scholar Edward Said founded this orchestra of Israelis and Arabs as a model for cooperation across the brutal divides of the Middle East. In doing so, they hoped to replace ignorance with education, knowledge, and understanding; to humanize the “other”; and to imagine a more hopeful future.
