Ankur Brings Multicultural Show to the Stanley Milner Theatre

Artists are creators, visionaries, critics, and teachers and link us to our past and future. They query prejudices, break down barriers and challenge us to do the same. The art provides a safe place for citizens to engage in democratic dialogue.

Ankur Brings Multicultural Show to the Stanley Milner Theatre
For an evening of truly multicultural entertainment, you need look no farther than right here in the City of Edmonton where you could enjoy the World Music and see vibrant hair-raising ethnic dances from almost every corner of the world under one roof. On Oct 24, 2009, Ankur Multicultural Association for Performing Arts, a non-profitable association will organize a dazzling multicultural show. This will include Ugandan, Kathak (East Indian), Ukrainian and Salsa dances. Under the direction of Rod Olstad, the talented young violin players from Gateway Fiddlers will delight the audience. In addition, Ankur is fortunate to have a well-known tabla (Indian drum) player who is visiting from Kolkata, India. This musical evening will feature a Tabla (Indian drum) composition by Pradyut Ray, the visiting artist from India.

This multicultural show will be held at the Stanley Milner Library Theatre, 7 Sir Winston Churchill Square at 7.00 pm on October 24, 2009.

At only $12.00 per ticket, it is an affordable evening of entertainment and the tickets are available through Tix on the Square (780-420-1757) or from the following people:
