University of Dubuque Heritage Center has been selected to receive funding from Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Arts Midwest Touring Fund engages people in meaningful experiences with the fine arts of dance, music, theater, and other performing arts forms. Shesh Besh is a model of mutual respect in a turbulent, violent Middle East seeking an elusive balance of East and West through music while embodying two cultures living together in harmony. The ensemble is comprised of two members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra alongside three of the finest musicians from Israel’s Arab community. Shesh Besh is presented in cooperation with the Dubuque Arts Council.
Shesh Besh is part of the 2019-2020 Live at Heritage Center Performing Arts Series and will be at 7:30 PM, Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, in John and Alice Butler Hall. Tickets for Shesh Besh can be chosen as part of a flexible season ticket package through Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, or single tickets can be purchased from 10:00 AM-5:00 PM, Monday through Friday at the Farber Box Office, Heritage Center, University of Dubuque, 2255 Bennett St., by phone at (563) 585-SHOW, or online at dbq.edu/heritagecenter.
