SOLD OUT

Jessika Kenney and Eyvind Kang
{August 18th, 2019}

The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Information is very pleased to announce an evening of original music based in creative liturgies of many kinds including Persian radifs (radif refers to the structure of the Persian ghazal as well as Iranian traditional melodic patterns) performed by Jessika Kenney and Eyvind Kang.

Tickets for these performances will be made available to Museum members on Sunday, August 11th. If any tickets remain on Monday, August 12th, they will be made available to the public.

Sunday, August 18th, 2019
7:30 p.m.
9:30 p.m.
All seats for both performances have been reserved. Because all of the seats were sold to Museum members, who receive 24 hours advance notice of tickets going on sale, there will be no announcement sent to our general mailing list as we do not wish to advertise an event that has no more tickets on offer. If you would like to be placed on a standby list, please email your request--including your name & phone number--to events@mjt.org. If tickets become available we will call the phone number you’ve given.
