Under the auspices of the Mayor of Zouk Mikaël, Mr. Nouhad Naufal, the Youth and Culture Center organized a religious concert performed by Joumana Medawar in the rustic setting of St Doumit Church.
The concert was attended by Poet Henri Zougheib, Composer Joseph Khalife and Mukhtara Josiane Khalil. Ms. Eliane Fersan, director of program and public relations, announced the beginning of the concert by calling upon the audience to sing along with Joumana as “singing is praying twice”. Chanting with her melodious voice, Joumana moved the audience of 300 by the serenity and power of her voice and spread a mystic ambiance of silence, prayer and humility.
Accompanied by Marc Abou Naoum on the keyboards, Joumana chanted songs from the collection “Boukra el Dini Kiyameh” written by the Poet Henri Zougheib. This melodious and spiritual evening, which prepared the audience’s spirit to receive Christ’s resurrection, comprised readings from Reverend Paul Reyfouni and YCC Librarian Marie-Rose Kassouf.
