“Through a collaboration with Carnegie Hall and the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, we are thrilled to return to Abu Dhabi for the fifth consecutive year to lead a residency from March 3 – 14, 2015. We will lead creative composition workshops with students that will result in a final public performance of their new composition at the Abu Dhabi Theatre on March 14, 2015. We are also excited to present a private concert at the home of the U.S. Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, as well as interactive performances at local, private and international schools during our visit.
Decoda Personnel: Evan Premo, Bass and Project Leader; Sarah Beaty, Clarinet; Meena Bhasin, Viola; Saeunn Thorsteinsdottir, Cello and David Kaplan, Piano” – http://decodamusic.org/calendar/2015/3/3/decoda-in-abu-dhabi
