ARC in Israel & Amsterdam: A Photographic Essay

The ARC Ensemble's recent trip to Israel and Amsterdam undeniably scored a high note for the "Music in Exile" series, and for the ARC musicians as well. Besides the hectic concert schedule, there were also numerous rehearsals, dinners to attend, and even a bit of sightseeing. What follows is a brief photographic essay of ARC's travels this past March, all candid shots by the musicians themselves.

This chair was just sitting all alone in an empty field. On closer inspection, neither field nor chair was quite as fresh and fragrant as it might look here. Naturally, I checked for rats before I sat down."
