She is fearless, creative, smart, and seductive.
The CSO invites you to meet Scheherazade, the beloved heroine
from One Thousand and One Nights, and her fascinating stories
retold in music by Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov.
Scheherazade’s beguiling storytelling, interweaving plots full
of tension and suspense, would ultimately save her life from the
sultan’s wrath. The Edmonton Arabic Ensemble, featuring
traditional instruments and Arabic folk dancers, will join us in
this colourful journey to Middle Eastern lands.

The program concludes with Rachmaninov’s Piano
Concerto No. 2, starring sixteen-year-old Joshua Wong, winner of
the Concordia Symphony Concerto Competition for Youth: 2019
Award for Piano.

The concert will be preceded by a signing ceremony
of Memorandum of Understanding between the Concordia University
of Edmonton (CUE) and the Canadian Arab Friendship Association
(CAFA), and a lecture on Arabic culture and education by Mr.
Yazan Haymour, President of the CAFA, at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors, and are
available from Tix on the Square (780.420.1757), Concordia’s
Bookstore, or at the door. Special Family Admission: $40
