Performance at Artellewa arts centre mixed classical music and storytelling
On Friday, Awtar Quartet, joined by storyteller Anne Alfred, performed "Music & Animal Stories for Kids.”
The performance, which took place at Artellewa arts centre, mixed classical music and storytelling.
The musicians and the narrator weaved together stories and classical music, attracting the attention of the young attendees.
This was the first of a series of performances to be held by Awtar Quartet in a number of economically underpriviledged areas in Cairo.
On Monday the quartet plans to visit Tawasol school in Istabl Antar.
The quartet was established in 2012 and consists of Egyptian musicians working at the Cairo Opera House: violinists Yasser Ghoneim and Khaled Saleh, violist Essam Abdel-Hamid and cellist Mohamed Abdel-Fattah.
