Xalef u Shixani

This is a piece written by YES Academy composition student Muhammed Zeki. The first-time composer melded Western classical music with Kurdish folk melodies. It is conducted by Composition faculty Dr. Patrick David Clark, and performed by the YES Academy Orchestra at the Gala concert. Enjoy!
