Renowned Jordanian composer and pianist, Zade’s new project One Night In Jordan: A Concert for Peace is airing on PBS this month (see schedule below). The monumental concert television event filmed in HD, was one of the biggest concerts ever staged in Jordan. Set at one of the world’s largest remaining Roman Amphitheatres in the world, built nearly 2,000 years ago, the composer’s epic cinematic music blending East and West draws inspiration from the anthems of the great film composers, his homeland’s natural beauty and the efforts of the late King Hussein of Jordan to make peace in the Middle East.
Additionally, Zade has announced the first 2 U.S. concert dates of his summer tour. He will be performing at The Victoria Theater in Newark, New Jersey for a NJN Public Television pledge drive on June 5th and at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) for a KOCE Public Television pledge drive on July 3rd.
One Night In Jordan: A Concert for Peace is available on DVD now.
