Our Mission:

To preserving and integrating Arab culture by creating memorable musical experiences through ed­ucation and performance with emphasis on the musical traditions of the Arab World. The National Arab Orchestra (NAO) is a 501 c3 nonprofit organization that preserves and inte­grates Arab art and culture through music education, outreach, and performance. Founded in 2009 and established in 2010, the National Arab Orchestra is home to the NAO Orchestra, the National Arab Orchestra Takht Ensemble (NAOTE), and the National Arab Orchestra Community Choir (NAOCC). Our inspiring accomplishments have helped not only keep the culture alive and thriving, we have also brought this rich music to an entirely new and diverse audience in its own unique way, and it's exciting.
