ArtStarts At Rivermarket: Around The World With Boris Sichon

By Maira Ramirez, Special Events Coordinator

This past February, we had the pleasure of hosting Boris Sichon for our free, family-friendly performance at ArtStarts at River Market in New Westminster. Boris has been studying musical instruments from various different cultures worldwide, and has been practicing and performing for many years. Boris shared his talent by playing a variety of fascinating instruments from his personal collection of over 200!

The audience enjoyed an exciting musical journey around the world through 25 different instruments from various diverse countries. His instrument collection included: the Russian bagpipe, Eastern European flutes, the doumbek (a Middle Eastern hand drum), the Australian didgeridoo, the Indian tabla, the Turkish gong, Irish bones, and his very unique 120-year-old Russian xylophone.  

Each month we offer fun, free performances at River Market for the whole family. Be sure to check out our website to see what engaging activity we have planned!
