WHO WE ARE
We are an independent nonprofit entity formed by volunteers, amateur and professional musicians, driven by their passion for music. In 2016, upon inviting chamber music ensembles and soloists to perform in our hometown, we led the groundwork for a musical season by the name of Les Musicales de Baabdath.
WHAT WE DO
Fervent believers in cultural diversity, we curate, organize and promote classical, ethnic, and jazz music performances hosting Lebanese and international musicians. We do it by engaging sponsors, volunteers and music lovers.
