The Orchestral Music of Afghanistan

15 Jun 2023 | 19:30 | Sheldonian Theatre, Broad Street

Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey conductor

Featuring new compositions by Afghan composers living in exile, this concert celebrates the rich history of traditional Afghan music and explores how that tradition can be maintained and expanded globally at a time when making music in Afghanistan is forbidden. Curated and conducted by Oxford Philharmonic’s Conducting Fellow Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey, the Orchestra will be joined by guest performers on traditional Afghan instruments to give performances of recently composed works by composers Elaha Soroor, Milad Yousufi, Arson Fahim, Meena Karimi, Mohsen Saifi, Qambar Nawshad, Ghafar Maliknezhad, Qudrat Wasefi and Zalai Pakta.

The Sheldonian Theatre is a unique space to experience live music. To see an interactive map of the theatre click here.
