Syrian composer and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and Syrian-Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad present their newest project: "Home Within." Both members of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, Kinan and Kevork offer an impressionistic reflection on the Syrian revolution and its aftermath, artfully documenting poignant moments in Syria's recent history by interweaving live illustrations, visuals, and original compositions.

This 60-minute performance will be immediately followed by a discussion with the artists and an art sale featuring works created during the performance.

Tickets are $8-$15 and can be purchased online at: www.ihousephilly.org/IJ or by calling the International House Box Office at 215-387-5125, ext. 2.
