Summer with Dozan wa Awtar

Since our concert in mid-April, Dozan has kept busy. The children's chorus is performing a two-night concert on May 22nd and 23rd while the adults are busy with a workshop discussing its identity and mission.

The five-day workshop is led by a Lebanese-American woman who is guiding us in performance routines that help express who we are and where we want to go. The workshop is a lot like Virtue Ethics. It asks: 1. Who are you? Where do you want to go? How do you get there?

Right now, everything is an open book, which is great. We are learning how to explore uncharted waters together.

This summer the concert season will feature a pre-Ramadan performance, an early trip to Ramallah, and a late-summer trip to Ramallah. We are keeping busy.

The photos below are of our recent Dozan Day celebration and of our conductor, Shireen.
