By Candlelight – Fantasy & Folklore


29 Mar 2019, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM




The first performance of By Candlelight's 2019 season features musically adventurous Kevin Loh and Roberto Alvarez as they embark on an evening of music that stretches from traditional folk to modern contemporary compositions, in search of new sounds and colours unique to different cultures. Journey through these myriad landscapes with this unusual pairing of classical guitar and flute.
