First Annual Festival of Arabic Music & Arts

October 28, 2017 - November 12, 2017

First Annual Festival of Arabic Music & Arts

The Canadian Arabic Orchestra (CAO) is pleased to announce that single tickets are now on sale for the first annual Festival of Arabic Music & Arts (FAMA), running from October 28 – November 12, 2017. Passes have almost sold out for the Festival that brings together local and international artists to perform across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

The CAO and FAMA aim to promote intercultural dialogue among the tapestry of Canadian societies through music and art; seek to connect expatriate Arabs and non-Arab communities; and hope to build bridges through the musical heritage of Arabic culture.

Along with a musical lineup, FAMA presents two plays, Badi Etzawaj (I Want to Get Married) (October 29 @ Lester B. Pearson Memorial Theatre, Brampton) a comical look at marriage between people with different cultural backgrounds; and, in association with Théâtre Français de Toronto, Djihad (November 5 @ Berkley Street Theatre, Toronto), a French-language dark comedy that confronts head-on the misinterpretations of Islam and Muslim society.

Dedicated to connecting audiences with classical Arabic music while celebrating the freedom and diversity of Canada’s cultural landscape, the Canadian Arabic Orchestra delivers world harmony one note at a time!
