NOTES AGAINST THE BAN Musical Response From Seven Banned Countries
The Redwood Chamber Choir has partnered with two local groups of guest artists to bring performances that delve into Islam and Arab culture through music, art, guest speakers, and poetry. The series, directed by Crista Berryessa, will be structured in two parts.

The first concert on November 3, 2017 will be a combination of performances by The Redwood Chamber Choir in partnership with the Islamic Network Group. The evening will showcase art from the Arab world, presentations about Islam by the Islamic Network Group, spoken poetry, and more, all interwoven with sacred and secular Arabic music.

A second concert will be held on November 11, 2017 and will feature two guest groups. San Mateos Aswat Ensembles Notes Against the Ban repertoire will feature artists from the seven countries originally banned in the Executive Order travel ban of January 27, 2017. Founded by Nabila Mango, this ensemble is part of a non-profit group called Zawaya (

Presenting music from Libya, Yemen, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Iraq, the concert serves dual roles as ambassadorial outreach and as a healing salve. (

Members of The World Harmony Chorus will also be joining the performance. Founded by Daniel Steinberg, this group has three branches in Santa Cruz, Mountain View, and Oakland.

The guest musicians will be performing traditional music from their home countries with the two choirs joining them on several pieces.
