Founder's Letter

It is with great determination and passion that we launch the 15th edition of Beirut Chants. And thanks to you, our dear supporters and friends, music will resonate once again in the struggling city to inspire and empower its people.

Fifteen years ago, we envisioned making music accessible by organizing more than 24 concerts every year, free of charge.Here we are, 15 years on, still faithful to you, still true to ourselves, and as rooted as ever in our values. Since we began, we have pledged to offer free, valuable music to all. The changing times did not change us - wehave stood firmly by our people since 2007 and continue to do so every December of every year, always carrying a sincere message and sharing hope - our greatest enduring strength - with our audience and supporters.

Today, on behalf of the Beirut Chants team, I would like to express our love and respect for the Festival’s audience, this music-loving community that never deserted the churches and theaters, even in the darkest times. They, You, are the true custodians of our mission and the fiercest defenders of the Festival’s existence.

We meet in Beirut, the city we cannot live without; we meet to warm up our winter with music and chants.
