“Sirocco is a once in a lifetime experience,” describes Plays to See. Sirocco is guest-directed by South African cellist Abel Selaocoe and has received rave reviews since its 2018 premiere. Abel Selaocoe and his band Chesaba join the UK’s Manchester Collective in a program covering everything from arrangements for solo cello to classics by Purcell and Haydn, original African music, and a collection of gorgeous Danish folk songs.
