Building Bridges Through Music


The National Arab Orchestra (NAO) is known the world over for outstanding quality concerts and its innovative approach to performances. We also undertake a wide range of musical projects with commercial and community partners. While we work regularly with a range of venues and festivals, we are always excited to hear from new community partners we can work with to bring the NAO’s performances to new and un-reached audiences.

Building Bridges Through Music


The Building Bridges Through Music (“BBTM”) program is designed to teach students about the beauty and richness of the Arab culture while providing opportunities for cultural understanding and enrichment, and is made possible by a grant from the Knight Foundation.



The BBTM Program


Let's talk about this more – we already have it mentioned but we are doing new things with plans to expand. That would look something like this: The BBTM program is in its fourth year with plans to expand programming to instrumental music and class room workshops.
