Fairouz in Concert

Montreal, 24 January 2005

Fairouz, the Lebanese Diva of Arabic music will be in Montreal on February
12 and 13, 2005 to present two exceptional concerts at Place des Arts, Salle

On her third visit to Montreal, 50 musicians of international fame,
conducted by Maestro Karen Durgaryan will accompany Fairouz. Mr. Durgaryan
has directed the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra
of Yerevan, to high levels of success and perfection, and has equally worked
with Fairouz in her concerts in the Middle East, adding to her wide and
varied repertoire even more refinement. Fairouz's repertoire is constantly
evolving, whether it's ballads and classic songs composed by the Rahbani
Brothers, or oriental jazz flavours of her son, the great composer, Ziad

Karen Durgaryan has recently accompanied Fairouz in her concerts, where he
was capable of bringing Western harmony to the varied music styles and
melodies performed by Fairouz. The program for the Montreal concerts marries
a marvelous mix of classic and modern songs with a mélange of western and
eastern orchestrations that stay away from the oft-used concept of fusion.
What the audience will experience with Fairouz is a musical extravaganza of
the best kind.

Fairouz in concert is not just music and performance, but the heavenly and
unique voice of the mythical Diva. It's the Rahbani Brothers entire wealth
and power of music and the improvisational talents of Ziad Rahbani. It's the
orchestra, the chorale, the quality of the sound and the lighting systems.
It's a winning rendez vous with happiness and a moment of absolute musical
ecstasy to be cherished forever.
