Fairouz, the Lebanese Diva of Arab chanson, is in Montreal, the culturally unique city in North America, where she will present two concerts at the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier Place des Arts, on February 12 and 13, 2005.

Accompanied by 50 musicians and artists of international caliber, directed by the chef d'orchestre Maestro Karen Durgaryan, Fairouz will present a mix of her standard repertoire as well as new songs.

The audience will have the pleasure to hear the crystalline pure voice of Fairouz, her well known but incomparable ballades, and songs from her rich and varied repertoire. The new material from her recent albums shows the evolution of Fairouz's career toward a more jazzy style. The strong program of the two concerts promise extra-ordinary moments of enjoyment and musical ecstasy, whether due to the authentic delivery of the voice of Fairouz, or for the virtuosity of the musicians directed by the illustrated Maestro Durgaryan, whose credentials include the function of the director of the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra of Yerevan.

Fairouz in Concert is exclusively in Montreal, in two exceptional presentations on 12 and 13 February 2005 at the Place des Arts in the prestigious and famed Salle Wilfrid Pelletier.
