SULTANS OF STRING with Burlington Symphony Orchestra: A World of Music

Tickets available on WED SEP 18.

Three-time JUNO nominees Sultans of String are returning with their fiery violin, kinetic guitar and unstoppable bass and percussion grooves and will be sharing the stage with Burlington’s own Burlington Symphony Orchestra (formerly Symphony on the Bay) – creating the ultimate crossover performance. This energetic musical collaboration will showcase traditional band instruments and string, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments of the full orchestra. Join “Canada’s ambassador of musical diversity” and enjoy an upbeat performance of Celtic, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic and Cuban music and culture.

This performance includes afro-cuban percussionist Alberto Suarez and special guest Pakistani-Canadian Anwar Khurshid on sitar.
