Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani (FBQ) Museum is organising a charity concert by the renowned MAqam Ensemble, member of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, and led by MAias Alyamani.
Held in partnership with Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), the event on April 27, at 3.30pm will be supported by the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA).
Regular museum entrance fees apply and all the revenue will be donated to QRCS’s relief projects in Syria and Yemen, according to a statement.
The concert will be preceded by a project presentation by QRCS and the screening of Syrian
short film Mare Nostrum.
The stepping stone for this event is the exhibition “Syria Matters”, running at MIA until April 30, which includes an oud and a qanun from the FBQ Museum’s collection.
Exploring five periods of Syria’s history, illuminating its key role in the artistic and intellectual history of the world, the exhibition highlights the extraordinary cultural heritage of this country, and at the same time pleads to safeguard this unique legacy in danger.
FBQ Museum is a heritage venue that exposes a large and diversified array of exclusive artefacts from the Jurassic period to the early Islamic period, and further up to the present day, across a wide range of themes.
The Museum is located in the Al Samriya Estate, which features a theatre and a space for contemporary art. It is open for the public every day of the week.
