Biography of Egyptian-born composer, Halim El-Dabh who passed away in 2017. He studied with the giants of 20th-century musical composition and conducting, including Leopold Stokowski, Irving Fine, Leonard Bernstein, and Aaron Copland. His music is well known in his birthplace, where some of his compositions are heard in Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza, a spectacle that captures the mystery of the ancient structures in narration, lights, and music and is performed daily at the pyramids.
