Belonging: London Symphonia - Music and poetry with Najwa Zebian
Poetry & spoken word
Celebrated Lebanese-Canadian poet, Najwa Zebian joined songstress Maryem Tollar and London Symphonia to explore the search for home. For this special concert, East met West with classical favourites like Dvorak’s Going Home, traditional Arabic music, and Tollar’s evocative compositions. Zebian’s poetry formed the basis for an unforgettable journey of longing and discovery.
