September 11, 2018


BUFFALO, NY – ArtsCanisius will present The Rose Ensemble’s production of a “Land of Three Faiths: Voices of Ancient Mediterranean Jews, Christians and Muslims” on Thursday, October 4. The event features a public lecture at 10:00 a.m. and a free performance at 7:30 p.m. followed by a reception. Both the lecture and the performance take place in the college’s Montante Center.

With its mix of classical and sacred instruments, “Land of Three Faiths” embarks on a captivating journey of language, spirituality and cultural exchange, connecting faiths through extrinsic vocal styles and age-old traditions. The program explores Judaism, Christianity and Islam along with the devastating chapters that compose their histories. 

This production of The Rose Ensemble is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The lecture is part of the ArtsCanisius series at Canisius College.
