CAIRO - 11 June 2019: Japan's international violinist Rio Gutu is set to participate alongside Maestro Ahmed Saidi, conductor of the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, in performances at the Opera House in Cairo and Alexandria on June 15 and 17.
“This concert will be a great success, as Gutu has proved to be an important classical musician with a large and growing audience in Asia, North America and Europe,” said Saidi.
“Rio has performed a concert in Egypt for the first time in 2015. His next concerts come within the framework of the Opera's celebrations of the 30th anniversary of its establishment,” concluded the Egyptian maestro.
Gutu began his career at the age of seven when he first appeared at the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan. Since then, he has appeared as a soloist with many of the leading orchestras in the world and under the leadership of many famous maestros in many of the world's most prestigious places, such as the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, Philadelphia and New York Philharmonic and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
