"Masters of Syria" Concert

Part of ‘Celebrating Syria: A Festival of Arts and Culture 2018'.

On the final evening of our "Celebrating Syria" Festival 2018, 13 October, we were treated to a fascinating night of Syrian music by the amazing Masters of Syria, an ensemble of artists from the Syrian National Orchestra.

The concert was held at Emmanuel Church in Didsbury and was introduced by Jiff Smith, Withington MP. The audience enjoyed the songs which combined classics with newly written pieces. The final few songs were traditional Syrian songs which got a lot of people out of their seats to dance in the traditional Syrian way.
