On Friday 20 March the Awtar Quartet will play works by Arab composers along with Western classical music.

The concert will include works by Vivaldi, Mozart and Bach, as well as Omar Khairat, Rageh Dawoud and Ammar ElSherei. 

The performance will take place in a unique location- AlRab3 Cultural Centre- to celebrate its first anniversary.

Founded in March 2014, AlRab3 (or AlRabaa) aims at promoting art and providing a space for expression through numerous cultural activities. The centre is located in the heart of old Cairo, in the Fatimid area.

Founded in December 2012, the Awtar Quartet performs a variety of music genres, from Arabic to easy listening compositions, as well as Western classical music gems.

The quartet consists of Egyptian musicians: Yasser Ghoneim on first violin, Khaled Saleh on second violin, Essam Abdel-Hamid on viola and Mohamed Abdel-Fattah on cello. One of the ensemble’s aims is to present their “proficient” skills to opera regulars according to their Facebook page.
