USA: California, Mountain View: Mesopotamian Night V, 2012

Assyrian Calendar: February 18, 2012.

The Assyrian Aid Society of America (Santa Clara Chapter) will celebrate the fifth annual Mesopotamian Night concert of Assyrian music on February 18, 2012, at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, in Mountain View, CA.

Malek Rama Lakhouma, a musical by the young Assyrian composer Edwin Elieh set to the poem by the late Hannibal Alkhas, will open this exciting program. The music is commissioned through a generous grant from the Assyrian Culture Fund under Dr. Eden Naby Frye. A company of 15 singers selected from across California will perform what promises to be an exhilarating display of Assyrian music.

The second part of this memorable evening will center on Assyrian songs of the 1970s composed by Vania David with lyrics by Misha Ashoorian. Edwin Elieh’s orchestral arrangement of this heart-warming music was commissioned by a generous grant from Monica and Vladimir Moghadassi.

The Mesopotamia Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Kendal Bailey will accompany the renowned Assyrian singers Tony Gabriel, Lazar Malko, Salem Sefo, Rita Touma Davoud and Jowan David.

Silent and live auctions will offer a colorful variety of art by Hannibal Alkhas, Issa Benyamin, Paul Batou, Youbert Lazar, and Fred Parhad.

Guests of honor Vania David and Misha Ashoorian will receive the Mesopotamian Achievement Award.

Wine and hors d'oeu-vres will be served prior to performance.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
