Dubai Chamber Choir play The Fridge in Al Quoz

Music feature

Rock, hip hop, metal… when it comes to the big genres, Dubai’s music scene isn’t too badly stocked for entertainment. But if you’re into other, less mainstream styles of music, it can be slim pickings – which is why you should treasure this week’s performance by Dubai Chamber Choir like it’s, er, treasure.

They’ll squeeze into The Fridge on May 24 to perform four songs by groundbreaking American composer Eric Whitacre, whose experimental music has garnered him not only several awards, but also three music festivals in his name – one in Australia and two in Italy.

A fine pedigree, then, for the four pieces that the choir will perform on the night: ‘When David Heard’, ‘Lux Aurumque’, ‘Sleep’ and the intriguingly titled ‘Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machines’. It should be an arresting show, too, because the 40-strong choir will be performing on the petite upper floor of The Fridge, just feet away from the front row of the audience – an experience that you won’t find anywhere else in the city.
