SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA OF SRI LANKA

ARCHIVE: SOLOISTS

 


Over the years, the SOSL have been privileged to perform with fine soloists, both instrumental and vocal. They have been Sri Lankan born, of Sri Lankan descent, internationally famous concert artistes, and even a couple of legends - and happily, these are not mutually exclusive. They have included child prodigies as well as septuagenarians. Some have returned to perform with us many times. They are listed below in alphabetical order, and we thank them all for their excellent performances.
