Among these memorial initiatives, an evening of musical tribute organized by Together LiBeirut will gather people today, August 3rd, on the St Nicholas stairs in Gemmayzeh at 8:30 PM Beirut time.
The public is invited to bring along a candle or a flower in memory of the victims and adhere to COVID-19 precautions during the gathering.
The event will be streamed live on the Facebook and Instagram pages of Together LiBeirut for those who cannot physically attend, including the diaspora and friends of Lebanon abroad.
The musical tribute will be directed by the pianist Lucas Sakr, accompanied by local musicians like violinist Mario Rahi, bassist Zaher Sebali, percussionist Jad Sakr, and soloists Marianne Alwan, Suzanna Assaf, and Georges Noun.
A choir including Elie Asmar, Camilio Kahali, Marc Nasr, and Joseph Gerge will also perform.
