The Faculty of Arts and Humanities hosts Maestro Nayer Nagui and his ‘Cairo Celebration Choir’

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities in collaboration with the Student Union has organised a cultural event that captured the essence of Arabic and Western cultures and merged them into a musical masterpiece, by hosting Maestro Nayer Nagui, the founder and artistic director of the Cairo Celebration Choir, at the BUE theatre on Sunday the 18th of November, 2018.

Maestro Nayer, in complete harmony with his Choir, successfully introduced his glorious masterpiece “Aghany Bel Araby,” a compilation of folkloric songs by highly-regarded Egyptian composers such as Sayed Darwish & Gamal Abd el Reheem.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees Mr. Mohamed Farid Khamis, the BUE President Professor Ahmed Hamad, Board members, Deans of the Faculties, staff and students attended the event and all enjoyed listening to the Egyptian Folklore songs that were presented in an innovative way developing a cross cultural taste for music.

Professor Shadia Fahim, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, along with the BUE President Professor Ahmed Hamad honoured the guest by presenting the University Shield of Honour, thanking him and the Choir for their exquisite performance, and acknowledging all the Student Union members for their collaboration that made this masterpiece accessible to BUE students.
