The Guy Mendilow Ensemble (GME) is “an international tour de force” (Bethlehem Morning Call) from the Middle East, South and North America. GME combines world-class musicianship with cinematic storytelling in shows that “explode with artistry, refinement, and excitement” (Hebrew Union College), whisking audiences to distant times and picturesque places, conjuring voices lost to upheaval, to spark personal connections with stories of ordinary people living through extraordinary moments of change. Adding such visceral dimensions to tales of the long-ago-and-far-away, GME stirs resonant questions about our own struggles and dilemmas today. GME’s program design and implementation is guided by the company’s core values: contribution, excellence, deep listening, conversation and sustainable partnership.
