Conducted by maestro Mohamed Basha, the Cairo Symphony Orchestra will be accompanied Ayoub Sisters Sarah and Laura to perform their debut album at the Cairo Opera House on Saturday 26 January.

"We are delighted to be performing our debut album," the duo stated during the event's marketing campaign, urging fans to "join for a night to remember."

Internationally renowned Egyptian/Scottish classical artists, the Ayoub Sisters have taken the international music scene by storm since their debut at the Royal Albert Hall in 2016.

With Laura Ayoub on violin – performing on an 1810 J.Gagliano – and Sarah Ayoub on cello, and both also playing piano, the classical duo was discovered by producer Mark Ronson.

Their young yet sparkling career has led them to sign a contract with Decca Records, one of the UK’s biggest record labels playing the BRITS and the BAFTAs, with their album debuted at number 1 on the Official Classical Artist Albums Chart.

Their rendition of George Michael's Mother's Pride at the BAFTAs reached the top of the iTunes chart within minutes of its release and they were Global Award nominees and winners of the Infinitime Music and Young Scot Awards.

The duo explores many musical genres, starting from classical music to Scottish traditional repertoire, topping it with captivating arrangements of pop, funk, and world music.

Their virtuosity and creativity have taken them to many prestigious halls in the UK (the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, London Palladium) and the rest of Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Programme:
26 January, 8pm
Cairo Opera House, Zamalek
