Mary Ellen Donald's Middle Eastern Treasures concert -- February 24, 2018


Renowned percussionist Mary Ellen Donald will present this year's program of her Middle Eastern Treasures series on February 24 in Alameda, California.

Mary Ellen is creating an especially impressive show in 2018 to celebrate her 75th birthday later this year. The concert will include two Arabic music ensembles including such Bay Area music luminaries as Susu Pampanin, Nazir Latour, and Reda Darwish.

In addition, there will be performances by no fewer that five first-rate belly dancers: Amberetta, Alma, Rebecca Vasile, Basinah, and Zahara.

I'd travel a long way to see Mary Ellen, but I'm afraid Alameda is a shade too far. She's an amazing musician and an amazing woman as well. Anyone who is close enough to attend should grab their chance and GO!
