ABOUT SIMON SHAHEEN: Simon Shaheen is one of the most significant
Arab musicians, performers, and composers of his generation. His
concert credits are a veritable compendium of the world’s greatest
venues: Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Cairo’s Opera House, Theatre
de la Ville in Beirut, and Belgium’s Le Palais des Arts. In 2000
Shaheen appeared at the Grammy Awards with Sting, arranging the
violin section for Sting’s live rendition of “Desert Rose.”
As a composer, Shaheen has received grants from the National
Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, Meet
the Composer, the Jerome Foundation, and Yellow Springs Institute.
His work incorporates and reflects a legacy of Arabic music, while
it forges ahead to new frontiers, embracing many different styles in
the process. This unique contribution to the world of arts was
recognized in 1994 when Shaheen was honored with the prestigious
National Heritage Award.
Mizna is proud to host Mr. Shaheen in Minnesota where he will play
for an intimate crowd of supporters and admirers.
