2018-07-09Imagine Summer Arts Camp kicks off againAmalgamating music, dance, and theater, the camp is initiating a new method of performing arts education.
April 21, 2018«كازينو الأنس» عرض مسرحي يرقى لمستوى الاحترافبيروت ـ «القدس العربي»: «كازينو الأنس» عرض مسرحي يستقبل الجمهور مباشرة ودون ستائر. الفرقة الموسيقية تلتزم مقاعدها في الركن الأيسر وتدندن. شاشة تلفزيون ضخمة ترتفع فوق البار بكثير مستعيدة مسلسل «لن أعيش في جلباب أبي». وفي الركن الأيمن ستارة حمراء ومسرح صغير ينتظر شاغليه. مقاعد وطاولات للساهرين، فـ«كازينو الأنس» يلتزم برنامج «فرفشة» مسائي. مسرح غني يفوق بحجمه ربما بعض صالات الليل في شارع الهرم في القاهرة، يمتاز بواقعيته. «كازينو الأنس» ليس عملاً مسرحياً تجارياً بل تطبيقياً عملياً للطلاب في مجالات تعليمية متعددة في الجامعة اللبنانية الأمريكية. مهمة شارك فيها نحو 60 طالباً، بإدارة من مايسترو العمل أستاذ فرقة الغناء والعزف في الجامعة عمرو سليم، وخريج الجامعة السائر بثبات في الإخراج عوض عوض. والأهم أنهما معاً ثنائي يفيض «فرفشة». معهما هذا الحوار:
April 16, 2018شارع الهرم انتقل الى بيروت مع مسرحية "كازينو الأنس"ولكن العز لا يدوم طويلًا، فسرعان ما تفضحهم مجموعة تسريبات تجعلهم أسرى لـ"كازينو الأنس"، حيثُ تتكشّف معلوماتٍ خطيرة عن حادثة أغتيال رئيس أمن الجيزة، كان تمّ طمسها عن الرأي العام بسبب التضليل الإعلامي.

April 16, 2018كازينو الانس“من شارع الهرم الى«الجامعة اللبنانية الأميركية» مسرحية غنائية باللهجه المصريه العاميه (البلدي) بتشيل الهم عن القلب معجونه و مغمسه بقالب فكاهي بنكهه البسط و الانشراح (هيصه و زمبليطه) التأليف والإخراج الموسيقي للمخرج عمرو سليم ، و اما المخرج عوض عوض اخذ على عاتقه مهمة الإخراج المسرحي فكانت الحصيله عمل مسرحي غنائي , بلوحات راقصه تذكرنا بالبرودواي شو(Broadway show) التي تعتبر عنصر لا يستهان به من عناصر الجذب السياحي في نيويورك(New York)
April 16, 2018«شارع الهرم» إنتقل إلى LAU «كازينو الأنس» يكشف الوجه التفي عصر يسهل فيه الحصول على المعلومة، يسهل أيضاً التضليل. في «كازينو الأنس» الواقع في شارع الهرم في القاهرة، سنكون شاهدين على انقلاب قدر خمسة أشخاص بسبب «تسرّب» معلومة إلى الإعلام، وخضوعها لمختلف أشكال الفبكرة والتضليل. كل هذه الأحداث ستجري في جو خفيف وظريف وقريب من الناس.
April 16, 2018صورة طبق الأصل عن ملاهي شارع الهرممن حسنات المرجعيات الأكاديمية الجامعية أنها وسّعت نطاق إهتمامها ليشمل عنصر الترفيه في الفن فلا تبقى التجارب محصورة في الإطار النخبوي الجاد، وبالتالي تخرج المشاريع إلى النور مع جماهيرية مضمونة لأنها تحاكي الواقع وتتفاعل معه، مثلما فعل المخرجان المصري "عمرو سليم" واللبناني "عوض عوض" في مسرحيتهما "كازينو الأنس" على خشبة "غولبنكيان" بالجامعة اللبنانية – الأميركية (lau) في بيروت.

November 18, 2016The Rich Land of the NileAfter moving from Egypt to the United States, I realized that the majority of Western musicians have had little or no exposure to the Arab music style despite some Western string and wind instruments, with the exception of the horn, being used in the Arab music tradition. After researching several ways to interpret this style of music on the horn, I have created a Book of Etudes that presents techniques to practice the Arab vocal characteristics on the horn.

March 6, 2014Egyptian musicians to perform in BellportThe Grace Notes Concert Series at the Bellport United Methodist Church, 185 South Country Road, will present a most interesting program on Sunday, March 9 at 3 p.m.

Known for his versatility and virtuosity, described as "expressive and ghostly wailing [playing] of a kind never heard from the instrument before, Egyptian hornist Amr Selim is quickly establishing a reputation as one of today’s foremost horn players; drawing audience
wherever his horn takes him by his distinctive sound across different musical
genres. Having started playing the Horn at the age of eleven, won his first job only
five years later at the age of sixteen with the Cairo Symphony Orchestra. He has also
served as Guest Principal Horn with Amman Symphony Orchestra, National Algerian
Orchestra, Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra and Symphony of the Americas in
Florida; under the batons of renowned conductors: Daniel Barenboim, Frank
Shipway, Christopher Muller, Ingo Metzmacher, Gunther Schuller among many
others. Amr has toured as a soloist, chamber musician and teacher throughout
Europe, South Korea, and across the Middle East and United States.

As an active chamber musician, and winner of the Ackerman and the Egyptian
Ministry of Culture chamber music competitions, he is a co-founding member of
Tarmu Wind Sextet and recently released an album "Stained Glass Stories" with Jazz
Vibraphonist and composer Eldad Tarmu. Amr is a founding
member of Gadayel Duo with his wife; pianist Seba Ali with recent performances at
Santa Clara University, Silicon Valley Music Festival, Lincoln Center, and Kaufman
Center in New York City. His chamber performances have taken him to many
prestigious halls, but also a chance to give back to his community by performing at
many nursing homes, retirement communities and hospitals.
The winner of the internationally recognized 2012 Northeast Horn Solo
Competition, Dr. Selim has appeared as a soloist with Burlington Chamber
Orchestra, Gracias Symphony Orchestra, Stony Brook Symphony Orchestra, Cairo
Conservatory Orchestra and Bibliotheca Alexandria Orchestra when he gave the
Egyptian premier of the Gordon Jacob Horn Concerto, Stony Brook Wind Ensemble
when he gave the world premier of composer Peter Winkler’s Elegy for Horn and
Wind ensemble. His performances have been broadcasted on Deutsche Welle,
Korean National Broadcast Network, WHSU and New York’s Classical Music Radio
WQXR.
As an educator, Dr. Selim is an Assistant Professor of Music, and Founder and
Director of Imagine Summer Arts Camp at the Lebanese American University Prior
to moving to Beirut, he was the horn professor at Adelphi University, Mahanaim
Conservatory, and Director of Chamber and World Music Ensembles at the Knox
School and has given and continue to give masterclasses and workshops at many
prestigious institutions such as at Manhattan School of Music, New York University,
Queens College, Stony Brook University, among other institutions in the U.S, South
Korea and the Middle East. He also served as horn faculty for the undergraduate
music department at Stony Brook University as well as a Chamber Music Coach for
its Pre-College Division. For the 2013-14 season, he was the head of Music at Appel
Farm Arts Camp.

Along with the masterpieces of the 18th through 20th centuries, Amr is constantly
inspired by works composed in our time and enjoys working with living composers;
having premiered many works by European, Middle Eastern and American
composers. Interested in bridging the Eastern and Western Music, he recently
finished his etude book titled “Vocalizing the Horn; A pedagogical approach to
interpreting Arab vocal music on the horn”. An etude book that helps non-eastern
horn players to understand and perform Middle Eastern works. His research
includes topics on Music and Qur’an and the religious music of Egypt.
Dr. Selim Holds a Bachelor of Music from Cairo Conservatory, a Professional
Performance Certificate from Lynn Conservatory, and as a Staller Scholar he holds a
Master’s of Music and Doctorate of Music Arts degree from Stony Brook University.

Like a braid [gadayel]: flexible, intimate, creative, and simple yet complex and strong, Gadayel’s core members are Egyptian artists pianist Seba Ali and hornist Amr Selim.

Classically trained musicians Seba and Amr were raised in musical families. Growing up, their musical experience was diverse; hearing Oud, Um Kalthum and folk Egyptian Poems in one room and Bach Cello Suites in the other.

They strive to bring folk music from all cultures, streamlining it to all people around the globe. Music that ranges from deep in the South of Egypt to Tibet. They believe it is rather special and effective to perform this music on usual Western instruments.

Vocalizing the Horn, utilizing the piano, Gadayel exceeds the expectations of their instruments to make adapting any folk music possible. They create this aura, sometimes by writing their own music.

In addition to evoking and extoling the standard literature, Gadayel feels very strongly about commissioning composers to write new works. Gadayel is always looking for collaborations with new artists and interdisciplinary projects.

Gadayel is a vigorous ensemble that wishes to revamp the horn and piano duo genre; which has long been missed from the chamber music scene.
With each component strand functionally equivalent in zigzagging through the overlapping mass of the others; their music will get you to see, feel and smell places you have not experienced.

Quintessentially, music has one heart. A heart that accepts all. Gadayel genuinely aims for that music. Gadayel is a love relationship between music and places. A life-long one; just like its members’ marriage.

There are grave consequences for both the media and the youth in a society increasingly controlled and managed through the news channels. Today, everyone is spending more time in watching TV news channels. The programs on the news channels influence our decision process and shape our perceptions of the world. And It is impossible to escape the pervading impact of these news channels. Alternative Facts is a performance to shed some light on the other side of any story. Together, we will experience the difference between a piece of news and facts. The report tells us that more Syrian refugees than not are part of some terrorist groups, the truth is not quite that.

"Alternative Facts" is a blend of Arabic and Western music to reflect the treatment of Arab-related news by the western media, it is also a mixture of music, singing, spoken word, dancing and acting to reflect the power of image and illustration.

Since commissioning the Egyptian composer and trumpet player Mohammad Sawaah to write a work for horn that contains many of the Arab vocal characteristics, I have researched different ways to interpret this type of music on the horn and will perform the commissioned piece in my lecture recital. To maximize the chances of sounding as authentic as possible, along with my research, I have composed a short “Book of Etudes,” which will reflect a few different ways to practice the Arab vocal characteristics on the horn.

Teaching Philosophy


For me, teaching is a partnership between the student and the teacher. Hard work from both sides to keep the partnership running efficiently. The horn is an extension of your body; playing the horn should feel easy and natural, and no matter what age or level you are, that is the concept we will be aiming for. I believe that, as with anything, something is only as hard as you make it. I also believe that Creativity is in the practice room. My philosophy is to help you get even more creative in your practicing, make playing and performing fun, to develop your love for music. I’m dedicated to developing not just a French horn player, but the whole musician. Tailoring my teaching style to your learning style. Through the utilization of solo repertoire, progressive etudes, technical exercises, and chamber music, you will grow in your musicianship, craftsmanship, and especially your love for music. I strongly believe in a welcoming and positive teaching environment, and work to develop not only good horn technique, but strong performing and presentation skills. Let the Horn do the work for you! The notes are already there.
