How to survive Valentine’s Day in Egypt? With music.
How to survive Valentine’s Day? With music. If, like us, you do your best to avoid the deluge of paper hearts and red teddy bears that appear at this time of year, this weekend has a selection of live music taking place throughout the city. French pianist Richard Clayderman is playing a selection of melodies at Al Manara in New Cairo on 15 February. The event is being sponsored by our friends at SODIC and tickets can be purchased through TicketsMarche. Cairo Jazz 610 will host guest DJs from Ibiza Oriol Calvo and Manu Gonzalez joining Omar Sherif on 14 February, and Egyptian contemporary classical composer Rageh Daoud is performing with the Cairo Symphony Orchestra at the Cairo Opera House on 16 February.
