The Al Ain Chamber Orchestra and the Al Ain Choral Society are performing a wonderful  “Musical Fantasia” together at 7:30 pm on Friday, 6th November at the splendid Sheikh Khalifa Auditorium, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Tawam Campus, UAEU.

It will feature a collaboration between the groups on a specially arranged version of  traditional English folk song, “Scarborough Fair.

The choir’s programme includes a range of pieces from other familiar folk songs through madrigals and classical works, including Fauré’s “Cantique de Jean Racine; and more contemporary choral works. The choir will sing in several different languages reflecting their international membership.

Orchestra director Dan Turcanu is also its composer-in-residence, who arranges all the pieces for each instrument. The orchestra’s programme includes The Beatles’ “Michelle, “Girl and “Eleanor Rigby” plus a Brazilian piece, “Tico-Tico no Fubá by Zequinha de Abreu.

Admission is free and so no tickets are required, and early arrival is advisable.
