Cairo’s Awtar Quartet will perform at AlRabaa (AlRab3) Cultural Center on 23 June.
The "Eastern Night" concert promises an evening of classical Oriental tunes to suit the mood of Ramadan.
The Awtar 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.
The quartet performs a variety of musical genres, from Arabic to easy-listening compositions, as well as gems of Western classical music.
Since its foundation on December 2012, the ensemble has also organised and participated in numerous events that aimed to bring classical music to young listeners and fuse storytelling with music.
