Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl
Doha hosts for the second time Moving Young Artists concert in its Grand Lobby
Doha, 19 March 2018 – Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl – Doha and Moving Young Artists have partnered in order to create a pleasant platform to support local young talents in the pursuit of their musical dreams.
The hotel organised a 60-minute concert in its majestic Grand Lobby last Saturday 10 March at 5 pm, for the second occasion, when nine young and aspiring artists had the opportunity to perform live in front of an excited audience. Moving Young Artists is an inspiring non-profit foundation that reaches out to sponsors, partners, organisations, peers and volunteers in Qatar in order to create opportunities for music to be the motor for individual and collective change and exchange.
Sonja Park and Joris Laenen, founders of MYA, said: “More than seven years ago, music brought us to Qatar. Being professional musicians, we figured that wherever we go, we can make music happen. Music is indeed the guiding force in our lives and we believe it can be for others too, for anyone. In order to make that happen, we founded MYA, supported by a number of like-minded believers who wanted us to get into action.
We engage others to share our vision and involve them to join our cause: bringing music to the people who don’t have access to music, guiding and supporting young local talent and developing campaigns where art and culture are tools of expressing one’s self or connecting with others.”
Wissam Suleiman, General Manager of Marsa Malaz Kempinski, said: “Our hotel is extremely proud to partner one more time with MYA and support the local arts scene and this noble cause through a series of events that embrace the positive qualities of music, bringing vibrant young energy into our majestic lobby.”
