    The Michigan Arab Orchestra-Takht Ensemble under the direction of Michael Ibrahim and featured vocalists Usama Baalbaki and Ghada Derbas mesmerized our guests with an array of beautiful classic Arabic and Syrian songs and music. It was a real night of Tarab Sharki Aseel that brought every one back to dear memories from the Motherland.

    Our immense appreciation to the event sponsors and volunteers.

    here are few pictures from that magical night.1452114_10151938616807211_859898883_n 960219_10151993674077211_1366367526_n 1506454_10151993656272211_1832774819_n 1472058_10151993664537211_1072433739_n 602925_10151993683752211_1027789927_n 994385_10151993646932211_1723028454_n 1453334_10151993664132211_924026298_n 1473046_10151993677537211_979156175_n 1238717_10151993688402211_1777730461_n 1461126_10151993685732211_1806060075_n 1476272_10151993689932211_1182442737_n 1461219_10151993690287211_1443136544_n
