*A very special thank you to the Berklee College of Music and
Palestine at MITfor all of their support.

 Simon Shaheen dazzles his listeners as he deftly leaps from traditional
Arabic sounds to jazz and Western classical styles. His soaring technique,
melodic ingenuity, and unparalleled grace have earned him international
acclaim as a virtuoso on the 'oud and violin.

Shaheen is one of the most significant Arab musicians, performers, and
composers of his generation. His work incorporates and reflects a legacy of
Arabic music, while it forges ahead to new frontiers, embracing many
different styles in the process. This unique contribution to the world of
arts was recognized in 1994 when Shaheen was honored with the prestigious
National Heritage Award at the White House.
    *Don't Miss the Chance to Add Your Dedication.
