Award-winning Tripoli choir expands to BeirutDivided by their voice type, new members of the Tripoli-based Fayha Choir sat in a semicircle, awaiting a command from their conductor. Once the group began to work as one, Taslakian ordered the keyboardist to stop playing, and the theater at the Khaled Bin Al-Walid/Al-Horj College in Beirut fell under the spell of the choir's harmonies as they rehearsed Ghassan Saliba's "Ya Ahel al-Ard" (The People of the Land).Established in the northern city of Tripoli in 2003, the Fayha Choir has grown over the years and gained prominence in Europe and other countries.Its success has led the choir to open its doors to singers from Beirut and surrounding areas as well. Commitment to the choir and its rehearsals are vital requirements for Taslakian – those who don't display such dedication may simply become "friends" of the group.
