About The Event

A symbol of both universal oneness and division, the iconic story of the Tower of Babel is a common thread in Christian, Islamic, and Jewish religious texts. All people united to build a tower that reached the sky, but God intervened, fracturing them with incommunicable language barriers.The story attempts to explain or describe the historic division of the human race into language and culture groups.

Can this ancient story shed light on the plight of divisive modern nation states and religious groups? Can it remind us that the sky itself is truly the limit if we can overcome our per-ceived differences? Spectrum uses this musical retelling to traverse and celebrate cultural and religious diversity.

Featuring globally-acclaimed Oud player Amos Hoffman in an ensemble under the musical direction of pianist and composer Noam Lemish.
