Arabic music past and present
is explored in new exhibition
The development of Arabic music over the last 15 centuries is traced in a
new exhibition at the Irving S. Gilmore Music Library in Sterling Memorial
The exhibition focuses particularly on 20th-century composers and artists,
including Umm Kulthum, the most famous singer in the Arab world in that period.
Her performing career lasted for over 50 years, from about 1910 until a final
illness in Cairo in 1973. For almost 40 years, her monthly Thursday night concerts
were broadcast live on Egyptian radio. As a result, her audience consisted
of millions, reaching far beyond the concert-going public of Cairo to households
all over the Middle East.
The exhibition is on view through March 31.
The Gilmore Music Library, 120 High St., is open Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-9
p.m.; Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1-9 p.m.
