    See the West-Eastern Divan Ensemble, led by the orchestra’s concertmaster Michael Barenboim, in their State Theatre debut! This world class ensemble features players from the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. The orchestra was founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward Said in 1999 as a workshop for Israeli, Palestinian, and other Arab musicians. Barenboim and Said materialized a hope to replace ignorance with education, knowledge, and understanding; to humanize the other; and to imagine a better future. Though this experiment in coexistence was intended as a one-time event, it quickly evolved into a legendary orchestra.
