The Amernet String Quartet will explore lesser known concert repertoire of the Sephardic tradition, including works by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Hamsi, and others, and culminating in a new suite of songs in the Ladino and Spanish languages, commissioned for the Amernet’s performance at the John F. Kennedy Center of the Performing Arts earlier in the season. The cast of that concert will remain the same, including guitarist Adam Levin and mezzo soprano Rachel Calloway. Inspired by JMOF-FIU’s current exhibition Discovery and Recovery: Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage (On view through February 14, 2016), the program will include a new arrangement by Jason Calloway from Iraqi musical tradition.
