El Sakia String Orchestra was formed in October 2010 with the aim of performing classical music in a location that mainly offers pop and rock concerts so that their young audience can have easy access to classical music. This ambitious and inspiring initiative is driven by Mohamed Saad Basha, the orchestra’s founder and conductor. The orchestra consists of 12 musicians and performs a Baroque repertoire, extending it to works from other eras suitable for this formation.
