STRINGS SERENADE

“Strings Attached”, an exquisite display of string sounds and a musical journey that evokes a multitude of colors, spirits, and temperaments . Through dance music as a tribute to the Orawa people in the southern mountains region of Poland, the haunting and melancholic Serenade by Tchaikowsky, and Jasnam Daya Singh's fiery, vibrant, fused with Brazilian temperament, Jazz Concertino, it's a virtuoso display of joyful music for strings that we all love.
