About Mesopotamian Night
The Mesopotamian Night Project was founded in 2007 by the Central Valley Chapter of the Assyrian Aid Society of America, under the guidance of Chapter President Tony Khoshaba and Director Fred Isaac, to generate an awareness and appreciation of Assyrian visual and performing arts. Mesopotamian Night has been providing new and visually stunning venues for these artists to showcase their talents. At the same time, the project has made significant contributions to the production, documentation and revival of lost Assyrian art and music in various forms from classical, to opera, to folklore and even pop music.

The Project has raised significant funds that have served in furthering humanitarian aid as well much needed construction and infrastructure projects throughout the Middle East from transportation services to building schools so that young minds are engaged early and systematically.
