Just Announced: Flutist Hadar Noiberg

Middle Eastern and North African rhythms meet Western harmonic structure as flutist, composer, and arranger Hadar Noiberg and her trio transcend on a journey through jazz improvisation and bring the best of Israeli musical culture to the Al Green Theatre on Thursday, November 22, at 8:00 p.m.

In the Middle East, the flute is a primal instrument that holds the deep soul of music, and Noiberg blends it with Western influences to create an innovative sound that transcends boundaries. She will be joined by Edward Perez on double bass and Yoni Halevy on drums for an evening to remember.

Tickets: Available at the Al Green Theatre Box Office
