The Toulouse Symphony Orchestra enchanted the audience during its performance at the UAEU’s Great Hall in Al Ain last Wednesday, 3rd May.
It was another great concert in the latest long-running Abu Dhabi Classics series.
Bryan Dedman, whose band delighted audiences at the AAMFs in 2013 and 2014, is now offering guitar lessons in Al Ain. The contact number is:- 054-435-4357 .
Jason Carter, one of the star performers at the AAMF 2015, sent the following message…
I decided to make a short video response to the situation in North Korea. Some of you will know that I spent 10 days in Pyongyang giving concerts there and this response is based upon my experience as a musician and music as a platform for intercultural dialogue.
A book will follow in the next couple of weeks, which aims to give a slightly different perspective based upon my experiences in North Korea. Info on the book will follow shortly.
Thanks in advance for watching and please feel free to share!
With best wishes from Jason Carter
