This year marks the 10th anniversary of Beirut Chants, an annual sacred and classical music festival launched in December 2007 featuring outstanding performances and music.The festival, which hosts thousands of visitors each year, last season featured 28 concerts over the 24 days prior to Christmas that were attended by over 30,000 individuals, and the number is averaging upward every year.Last Sunday, Dec. 10, marked Human Rights Day, which has been observed every year since 1948 and celebrated all over the world. That day, I couldn't but take my three young close friends Lilia, Saeed and Adam to attend the Beirut Chants ceremony in partnership with the Municipality of Beirut, celebrating this year's Human Rights Day, to an outdoor Christmas concert that paid tribute to Jerusalem. The event featured 100 musicians and vocalists from Fayhaa Choir, the Antonine University Choir and the One Harmony singers of Tania Kassis Academy celebrating the lighting of Beirut Municipality's Christmas tree.
