ABOUT THE CRYSTAL VIOLIN CALGARY CONCERT – FEB 7
Audi Royal Oak in Calgary will present Serafino’s debut performance of The Crystal Violin. The concert will mark her first feature-length concert in Canada in celebration of her two new albums – ‘Temptress’ and ‘Touch’. The Crystal Violin concert series will then tour to Edmonton, Toronto and New York in the spring of 2015.
The Crystal Violin event was inspired by Serafino’s 2011 popular Australian concert series – The Gold Violin, but completely customized for Canada featuring all new music recorded in Canada. Glistening ice and sparkling crystals will be the backdrop for the performance, but don’t rule out any spicy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern surprises to bring forward the distinct sounds from the ‘Temptress’ album.
