The Abrahamic Symphony:
Unity of Three by Ihab Darwish, John Debney, and David Shire

Gifted Emirati composer Ihab Darwish’s new work, in collaboration with Emmy-winning composer John Debney and Academy Award-winning composer David Shire, celebrates the historic opening of the Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi. Bringing together top international composers, musicians and vocal ensembles from Christian, Jewish and Muslim backgrounds, the symphony celebrates unity and peace amongst different faiths.

Darwish is joined by a line-up of internationally leading singers and choirs, as well as the acclaimed Beethoven Academy Orchestra, led by conductor Diego Navarro.
