Food and music from the detritus of war

FROME’S Cheese and Grain welcomes the London Syrian Ensem­ble for a meal and concert on Sunday 27th January, starting at  6.45pm.

The musicians will also lead an afternoon workshop of Syrian music. From the detritus of war,  they create beautiful music for a wider audience, introducing the sounds of Syria through a diverse repertoire of classical and traditional music from the region.

The ensemble is a collective of some of Syria’s finest musicians now based in the UK. They are a group of newly arrived and long-term residents who either studied or taught in the eminent Damascus Conservatoire.
