The West-Eastern Divan Ensemble is the chamber-size spinoff of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, a groundbreaking project founded in 1999 by Edward Said, the late Palestinian American writer and musician, and Daniel Barenboim, the acclaimed Israeli conductor and pianist. Grouping together Arab and Israeli musicians in an effort to promote peace and understanding, the orchestra crosses political, cultural and geographical boundaries while performing works by classical giants at concert venues worldwide. The Divan Ensemble features members of the orchestra and is led by its concertmaster, Michael Barenboim, son of Daniel Barenboim.

The ensemble’s first American tour took place in February and March 2020 and included a performance at the Arsht Center. Returning to Miami, the ensemble continues the humanistic mission of its larger counterpart, while offering audiences an opportunity to enjoy intimate works by classical music’s greatest composers.

One hour prior to this performance, join us in the Peacock Education Center for Classical Conversations, an exciting, behind-the scenes look at this performance led by Dr. Dorothy Hindman.

“An extraordinary concert ... all of the members of the audience didn’t just leap to their feet but also cheered as if swept off them.”
