Cuatro Puntos presents ‘The Rosegarden of Light’, music from Afghanistan

February 18 @ 3:00 pm

In 2014, members of the musical ensemble Cuatro Puntos traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan to teach for the summer at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music. Here they performed side-by-side with young musicians from the music school in a ground-breaking concert. A few months later, a similar event featuring the music students was the target of a terrorist attack intended to silence the voices of young people in Afghanistan.

The Rosegarden of Light project was a multi-national collaboration aimed to make the voices of these young people heard around the world. Cuatro Puntos partnered with two of the music school’s ensembles – the Afghan Women’s Orchestra “Zohra” and the Junior Ensemble of Traditional Instruments to release a CD that featured all three ensembles performing upbeat folk music from Afghanistan.

Since its release in 2016, The Rosegarden of Light album has been met with worldwide critical acclaim, been heard in several films, and has been heard on prominent media such as BBC Radio in England and NPR in the USA.

Please join us in Stonington as we tell the story of these brave young musicians, and continue to make their voices heard far and wide. Cuatro Puntos will play music from Afghanistan, including composer Sadie Harrison’s Gulistan-e Nur: The Rosegarden of Light, which will feature the live musicians of Cuatro Puntos alongside video performances by the Afghan Women’s Orchestra “Zohra”.

The concert will begin at 3:00pm at Calvary Episcopal Church, 27 Church St. The concert is free of charge, however a suggested donation of $10 per adult is greatly appreciated. This concert is presented by Calvary Music School and Calvary Episcopal Church. Full details can be found at cuatropuntos.org, or by calling 860-333-0297.
