This special program is part of a project from the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music that aims to bring together musicians from Arab (both Muslim and Christian) cultures with Israeli/Jewish and American cultures. Through creative collaboration, the Apple Hill String Quartet uses music as a means to cross cultural, religious, and political divides to seek truth, humanity, and beauty.

This concert features the Philadelphia premiere of Traces by Emmy-nominated composer Kareem Roustom, a work developed exclusively for string quartet, clarinet, and piano. This powerful piece explores the themes of love, loss, memory, life, death, and longing for the past.

This performance celebrates World Interfaith Harmony Week (February 3-9), a United Nations initiative.

February TopicHot and Bothered: How Globalization Stemmed Sex Education

Guest Speaker: Jonathan Zimmerman, Ph.D., New York University

OIP Logo
Sex education has never won a sustained foothold in modern schools. Although sexual attitudes around the world have liberalized in the past half-century, sex education has not followed suit; indeed, the modern phenomena of globalization have mostly served to inhibit–not to expand–the subject. As visual and digital technologies spread new sexual images and ideas around the world, citizens joined hands to curtail sexual instruction in their schools. In the 20th century, the movement of people and ideas across nations made sex education into a subject without a home.
