And now for something completely a bit different

pa_10-29-2016_lubana-al-quntar_800x450Saturday at 8pm the Aga Khan Museum there’s a concert fusing western classical and Arabic maqam music.  The featured artists are opera singer (Syria’s first) Lubana Al Quntar and composer and oud virtuoso Issam Rafea.  I do feel this is the sort of thing we need more of in Toronto.  There have been some interesting fusions of western and Chinese classical such as The Legend of Da Ji.  Let’s see what this one can offer.  You may even be able to see the show for free.  The organisers have offered a lucky Operaramblings reader a pair of tickets.  If you would like to enter the draw, comment here with contact details.  We’ll do the draw at 5pm on Thursday.  If you prefer to buy a ticket, details are here.
