Ahmadi Musical Group to Present Verdi Requiem Musical Work | Events in Kuwait

Ahmadi Music Group

It was a huge discovery for me last Spring when I attended the musical orchestra Gloria performed by Ahmadi Musical Group. I had no idea we had this caliber in Kuwait. Their performance was astonishing, I even took my kids along, they really enjoyed it. Next week they have their biggest performance yet and will be including international soloists. The event will take place at The English School in Salmiya, I booked tickets for the whole family, really looking forward to it!

Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem is a musical illustration of the relationship between God and man. Among the most dramatic musical works ever created, it demonstrates our wish to leave behind our human weaknesses and failings and to become more heavenly in nature.

On November12, 13, & 14 2014, Ahmadi Music Group will assemble its largest-ever choir and orchestra, as well as top-level international soloists, to present Verdi’s monumental work. Please do not miss this chance to see a highpoint of international culture come to life in Kuwait.

You can buy tickets online.

10363851_825923284102374_2821277729711677450_n

 

5 – 9 September 2014

This year;s theme is ‘Sharing’

The Observatoire de MAISON&OBJET has clicked on the “share” icon and is reflecting the latest influences in design and decoration. With the running theme “Sharing”, it explores the dynamics of “creative sharing” and foresees a benevolent future. Immerse yourself in the new Inspirations Trend Book and discover its perspectives in Hall 7, in the spaces designed by Vincent Grégoire for Nelly Rodi, François Bernard and Elizabeth Leriche.

Our era is clicking on the “Share” icon. Generation G for Generosity is bashing cynicism and liking “We”. New uses and values are reconfiguring ways of living together, exchanging information, goods, services and experiences. In the digital age, networking information is producing new tools with emerging practices in an economy of collaboration and cooperation. We are seeing a dynamic of creative sharing which is programming the future of a caring world.

 

Designer of the year is Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon, MAISON & OBJET’s 2014 Designer of the year, blows a whiff of London air into Paris. He creates an ephemeral workshop in partnership with the high echnology company Trumpf. This “instantaneous factory”
produces, in real time, a collection of diffusers and candles with a London fragrance. The packaging, products and boutique are like the event: unique.

Conference

Friday, September 5th from 11 am to 11.45 am
The conference space, Hall 7
The talented, hard-to-categorize Tom Dixon is always where you least expect him: an art director, interior designer, entrepreneur, designer, fashion designer, author… His collections are distributed throughout the design world; his spaces are glamorous and authentic. His is the success story of a self-made designer.
