This festive choral event will be a unique occasion to meet and exchange with other choirs and vocal ensembles of Lebanon, and various international choirs and vocal ensembles from Europe and Arabic countries.
The festival will show-off, nationally and internationally, the vitality, the richness, and the variety of the Lebanese choral scene.
It is the first step toward promoting and developing choral singing and the composition of Arabic music for choirs in Lebanon and the Arab world through choir networking on an international scale.
To proudly defend an image of the Arabic countries through the values of choral singing: mutual understanding, co-operation, self-development, living together, promoting peace, and being transformed by each other’s cultures and heritages thanks to the unique experience of vibrating together when we sing in harmony!
We hope that by choir networking, conductors, composers, singers, international choral experts and managers will come together to discover new methods, share their expertise, stimulate new networks and explore choral music in the Mediterranean region.
This year’s forum is a unique occasion for over 50 international choral specialists and music experts to learn about oriental choral music, discover the Lebanese choral scene and its musical characteristics, practices, repertoire, organizations, and so on. It is also an opportunity for the Lebanese to develop new ways to collaborate and share their own musical vibrations with international and local musical experts and colleagues.
