Arabic culture has had a tremendous impact on our world.
Did you know that such words as "cotton," "algebra, ""sugar,"
and "alchemy" are originally Arabic, or that Arabian stallions,
famous for their speed and beauty, were instrumental in spreading Arabic
culture and its many influences?
In this performance program—ARABIAN STALLIONS—which
includes Arabic songs, storytelling, and Oud (or lute) playing, students
will explore Arabic culture through its music, stories and language.
Learn about one of the world's most ancient and sophisticated cultures.
