It’s that time of year, when choirs are everywhere! One very special group returns to town Friday as the Soweto Gospel Choir performs in a Sony Centre presentation. The Grammy-winning group have brought their joyful sounds to audiences the world over and their all-new holiday-themed ‘Celebrate!’ tour offers a chance to join alongside the choir as they sing both the beautiful African Gospel Music and holiday favourites. We have a FREE pair of seats for this great event. First response to email@example.com will get them!
The following evening, Saturday, it’s a family-friendly journey into the magic musical realm of ancient Andalucia at Koerner Hall. Join Juno Award-winning trumpeter David Buchbinder, dynamic divas Roula Said and Tamar Ilana, and their crew of cross-cultural musicians in a participatory parade of music and dance ideal for people 6-13 years old, parents, and grandparents, a convenient afternoon time.
On Monday at the Small World Centre, a concert by Rob Simms (tanbur, setar, oud) and Araz Nayeb Pashayee (daff, tombak) explores Kurdish, Persian and Arab modal music through improvisations that show the close ties linking these key family members of ‘Maqamistan’ (sounds like a lovely place!)
