Our children have so much to offer when given an opportunity.
This year’s festival will include some of their work in the world of Arabic Music and Art in this program entitled Small Wonders.
Small Wonders is a bouquet of music, song and dance by children. A production that tells a story of the young who have roots in the Arab world and branches in Canada that blossomed bringing forth beautiful art and music to enrich the art scene of their new home in Canada.
Three different ensembles come together in this beautiful concept that is presented as a concert where the audience is invited to pay whatever they can for entry tickets, and all proceeds go towards sponsoring children from financially challenged families to attend music lessons at the Canadian Arabic Conservatory of Music.
The Canadian Arabic Junior Ensemble, The Teen Ensemble and Choir, and young dancers from Zaytouna Dabkeh will come together on stage in a beautiful performance.
The message that we need to deliver to our children is that no matter where we come from, culture is a valuable heritage that should be celebrated and that no matter where we come from, we can achieve our goals.
