Abu-Ghazaleh Patronizes JOrchestra Commemoration of Al Nakba
Special to ag-IP-news Agency
AMMAN - Marking the 68th anniversary of the 1948 Al Nakba, the Jordanian National Orchestra Association (JOrchestra), chaired by HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, held a commemoration ceremony that revived a sense of Palestinian heritage through the performance of traditional Arabic tunes and poems of famous Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish. 
The talented members of JOrchestra headed by Conductor Sakher Hatar, presented a sparse and open musical portrait and offered a calming ambient environment that promotes thought and reflection. Meanwhile, the stars of the National Music Conservatory Arabic Ensemble Natalie Samaan and Beesan Kamal created a meditative state that soothed the mind of attendees with their angelic voices.
A host of ambassadors, diplomats, and guests attended the event that was held at the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Forum – Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh was presented with a framed blanket-jacket as a remembrance gift from the Crossing Lights for Thought & Creativity Group, resembling the pain and suffering endured by all Palestinians on this tragic day, marked every May 15, with the expulsion of over 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland.

A wide variety of homemade Palestinian sweets were presented to attendees.

The Jordanian National Orchestra Association (JOrchestra) is a non-profit organization, which was launched in 2014 as a cooperation initiative between Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh and King Hussein Foundation’s National Music Conservatory to fulfill HM Queen Noor Al-Hussein’s vision of music being an integral part of Jordan’s heritage and one that contributes towards promoting Jordan’s cultural identity and cross cultural exchange.
