The National Music & Global Culture Society is proud to present “Music of Two Worlds”, a concert at the renowned Merkin Hall Kaufman Center (129 W 67th St, New York, NY 10036), on June 26, at 7:00pm. Tickets are available on Eventbrite. The NMGCS is a not-for-profit organization that aims to unite our multicultural community through the advocacy of music from around the world. The concert will feature esteemed musicians: Stephen Salters, Amir Vahab, Nargiz Aliyarova (NMGCS president and founder), Duo Trouvaille, and Shenika John Jordan.
Stephen Salters is a first-prize winner of the prestigious Queen Elisabeth competition in Belgium. He is an internationally acclaimed opera baritone with a wide range of repertoire, and excels in both standard compositions as well as contemporary works. The Boston Globe deemed Salters a “fearless and exhaustingly honest performer and a thrilling singer.”
Amir Vahab is one of New York’s most distinguished composer/vocalists of Sufi and folk music. Vahab sings in many languages, and his songs incorporate instrumentals and melodies from the ancient lands of the Middle East, giving his music a unique, mystical style. He was labeled “ambassador for a silenced music” by The New York Times.
In addition to being the president and founder of the NMGCS, Nargiz Aliyarova is a revered Azerbaijani pianist, with an extensive repertoire, spanning from Baroque to contemporary. She is known for her “powerful and artistic spirit”, appears regularly in solo and chamber music recitals, and has been featured in her performances with chamber and symphonic orchestras in 40 different cities around the world.
