KARACHI: Hashoo Group, owners of the Pearl Continental and Marriott hotels in Pakistan, will be hosting ‘Stradivaria’, a five-ensemble violin performance in four cities of Pakistan in the coming week. The musical tour, starting in Islamabad this weekend will go to Peshawar, Lahore and Karachi as well to welcome classical music lovers.
Under the direction of violinist Daniel Cuiller, ‘Stradivaria’, specialising in the 17th and 18th century baroque and classical music, will be the first of its kind performance in Pakistan.
Aiming to boost art and culture, Hashoo Group hosted a similar Cuban and Australian Festival in Pakistan last year.

We are happy to host these world class musicians for their first visit to Pakistan and are particularly delighted to bring this performance to Peshawar,” said Hashoo Group chief of sales, marketing and revenue, Lashley Pulsipher.
