The 4th Mesopotamian Night Musical event was filmed live on August 21, 2010 in Modesto, CA.  We now have released this historical event on 2DVDs and 2CDs box so our fans around the world would experience a taste of the Assyrian culture in variety of forms: classical, opera, pop, dance etc. Visit to learn more about this project.



Presents music of legendary Assyrian composers such as Paulus Khofri and William Daniel.  This year we added new young talent to our event such as George Somi, Sam Madoo, Edwin Elieh and Fred Elieh.  The highlight of the event is the cantata (Opera) Ninos and Shamiram, composed by Michel Bosc from France and sang by American opera singers Brian Thorsett, tenor and Liisa Davils, soprano in Assyrian language.  Set to Yosip Bet Yosip’s poem, recreates a portrait of tender love between the Assyrian nobleman Ninos and the beautiful shepherdess Shamiram.

The Assyrian superstar singer Walter Aziz lights up the Mesopotamian Night stage with ten of his songs.  All songs newly orchestrated by Edwin Elieh for the 50-piece Mesopotamia Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Kendall Bailey, and four backing vocals.  All spiked with a hearty dose of ballet and dance, in sparkling Assyrian costumes, by the Presidio Dance Theatre, choreographed and danced by Sherene Melania.
