Qatar to Host an Exclusive Tribute to Luciano Pavarotti, Blending Western and Arabic Music, a First in the Middle East – Funds raised will benefit Syrian refugees
The Pavarotti Foundation together with Rosso Italiano, and in partnership with H.E. Guido De Sanctis, Ambassador of Italy to Qatar, announced the launch of a tribute concert to Luciano Pavarotti, ‘Brave New World’, aimed at raising funds to support Syrian refugees. Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the passing of the Maestro, the concert, gathering renown Italian, local, regional and international artists, will take place on the 1st February 2018 at Qatar National Convention Center (QNCC), followed by a Gala dinner celebrating the Maestro’s values and growing legacy across the globe.
“This concert brings a mix of Western, Italian and Arabic music and culture, two worlds that are blending in a very unique way with Brave New World. By its nature, it is a first-of-its-kind in the Middle East. We finally gathered all the right partners to make this event a moment to remember in our contribution to help the Syrian cause. We hope to convince additional partners to join us in the coming months and are confident to have a full house on the 1st of February next year,” commented Laura Somma, Managing Director, Co-founder of Rosso Italiano & Executive Producer of Brave New World, who led this project and secured commitments from all partners between Italy and Qatar.
This concert entitled ‘Brave New World‘ is a message of solidarity and a symbolic partnership between Italy and Qatar joining forces to support displaced Syrian families and children currently living in refugee camps in Jordan. The funds gathered through this event will be used to support the growth and sustainability of existing psycho-social education programmes for children and families currently living in refugee camps in Jordan, under the umbrella of the Italian NGO Vento di Terra. In addition to providing psychological support to help them overcome their trauma from the war, the centres will provide a wide variety of educational and creative activities. Education, hobbies and artistic activities can play a major role not only in the recovery process but also in bringing a sense of dignity to those refugee families trying to find shelter, a place to live and some semblance of a normal life again.
