Happy Holiday Events | See you in the New Year!

Dec 16, 2015

As we wind our way toward Christmas and close up shop for a while, we’re pleased to announce some sweet shows in the new year.

In early February we remount one of the highlights of our festival program at Fort YorkWorld on a String impressed audiences with their combination of cultural traditions expressed through string virtuosity. From Chinese erhu to Canadian fiddling, the five participating artists have some great chops to showcase.

Later that month, it’s Balkan and Middle Eastern music with the four members of Turkwaz. Their performance at the Small World Centre last spring was a revelation, so this is one to watch!

This Saturday at the Centre, a guitar recital by Siamak Valaei highlights music by George Bizet, Niccolo Paganini, Heitor Villa-Lobos and more.

And on Sunday at Lula Lounge, ‘We Sing For Their Supper; – A Holiday concert for The Daily Bread Food Bank’ features a great lineup of jazz and world artists performing for a great cause.

All the best for the holidays from all of us here at Small World – back at you in the new year!
