Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) opens its 2019-2020 World Tour of Music with Shashmaqam, a New York-based ensemble recognized in their native Uzbekistan and Tadzhikistan for their extraordinary musical talent. Their music reflects Central Asia’s ethnic eclecticism: Uzbek, Tadjik, Afghan and Azerbaijani songs and melodies are brought together in a lively program that is at once exotic and accessible to Western listeners.
The concert takes place at Highland High School Auditorium, 4150 Ridge Road, Medina, on October 26, 2019, at 8 pm. Advanced tickets are $12 and are available online at www.ormaco.org (credit card fee applies) or by calling 330-722-2541. Tickets are also available at Medina and Wadsworth Buehler’s stores starting September 23, 2019. Tickets are $15 at the door, cash or check only.
