The Bishr Hijazi Arab Ensemble

Bishr Hijazi is a hand surgeon.  But at night, he indulges in his secret passion: Arab music.  Along with a classical violinist, two percussionists, and a belly dancer, he formed the Bishr Hijazi Arab Ensemble.  The group performs in our KNPR studios

The Bishr Hijazi Arab Ensemble performs at the Winchester Cultural Center on Sunday, April 24, at 7 p.m.
