October 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Benaroya Hall: Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall
From 9th century Islamic Spain to present day America
This concert is generously sponsored by Lani & Larry Johnson.
Oudist Ronnie Malley presents his original musical narrative about the life of Ziryab, a 9th century musician and polymath, who traveled from Baghdad to Muslim Spain and shifted the course of history. 2023 Recipient of the Michael Jaffee Visionary Award of Chamber Music America, “Ronnie Malley’s musicianship is superb and his interweaving of his own life with the story of Ziryab’s, as well as his highly-informative discourse on the medieval master’s legacy, make for an enlightening performance.” — Jacob Davis, chicagocritic.com
