The Classical Music Festival in Beirut survives war and assassinations

In its 22 years, the festival has cancelled only a single concert.

As its founder says:

‘Every year there’s some crisis’ and we say:

“My God, are we going to carry on?”

and we always do’

Excerpts from the Guardian of 11 April 2015    http://www.theguardian.com/

Lebanon’s fate may have heightened the pleasures of music, too.  “If there’s a wind in Syria or Iraq, it arrives here,” Bustani says.  “But war sharpens your emotions, because now we’re alive; tomorrow we may be dead.  That feeling is inherent in every Lebanese.”
