||In the perspective of the end of year holidays, a Christmas Concert, entitled NOTES DE JOIE (Notes of Joy) was held on Friday December 19, 2008 at Saint Louis Cathedral in Downtown Beirut.
This initiative, taken by students, graduates, friends and members of staff of the EcoleSupérieure des Affaires witnessed a tremendous success as a very large public attended to celebrate Christmas in a joyful musical ambiance with the ESA family.
The musical group presented a superb assortment of classical English and French Christmas carols as well as a classical Lebanese chant in Arabic, including “Il estné le divin enfant”, AdesteFideles, VenezDivinMessie, O little Town of Bethlehem, Ding Dong merrily on high and We wish you a merry Christmas…etc. A bouquet of eternal Christmas chants and hymns.
The musical group, conducted by Georges Najm, Head of Communications and Public Relations at ESA, was composed of a 14 instruments orchestra and a choir of 26 singers.
This ambitious musical project has been realized thanks to the support of IBL Bank in a step showing its sensitivity to this demonstration of hope and solidarity.
