Fayha choir, nominated by ECA-EC, wins IMC Music Rights Award

We are proud to report that the Fayha choir, member of ECA-EC, has been selected as the laureate of the 2015 IMC Music Rights Awards. The award was handed over in Rabat, Morocco, on November 11th 2015, during the opening concert of the music market “Visa for Music”.

 

The Fayha was nominated by the European Choral Association - Europa Cantat because of the extensive social work the choir has been doing over the last years, especially in the field of singing with refugee children, but also setting up school choirs, bringing Muslim and Christian young people peacefully together in one choir, offering learning opportunities to young people in the region and last but not least, organizing the first International Lebanese Choir festival for the promotion of peace and understanding.

 

The jury of the Music Rights Awards of the International Music Council, chaired by Gary Ingle (USA), recognized the extraordinary work the Fahya Choir has been doing for many years in Lebanon, often under difficult circumstances, promoting choral music as an art form but also as a social tool..
