This elegant annual fundraiser for the Arab American National Museum features The New York Arabic Orchestra, a culturally diverse group of musicians who come together around a common passion: Arabic music. Guest vocalists for this event include classically trained lyric soprano Ghada Ghanem and Naji Youssef, a Lebanese jabali tenor in the style of Wadi Assafi. The New York Arabic Orchestra was co-founded by Bassam Saba, a world renowned multi-instrumentalist virtuoso, conductor and teacher of Arabic music; and April Centrone, the orchestra's lead percussionist.
