Nai Syrian Children’s Choir Premiere Hussein Janmohamed‘s Rise Children, Rise to Peace

In 2016, a Canadian choir was formed to provide free music education to recently arrived refugee children from Syria. A mere two years later, the Nai Syrian Children’s Choir was invited to sing during Classical Movements’ 8th annual Serenade! Choral Festival “Mandela at 100: Songs of Hope, Justice & Unity” grand finale.

However, Nai was unable to travel to the United States.

Instead, a special recording was made of these tender-aged children performing two songs, including the world premiere of “Rise Children, Rise to Peace,” composed by Hussein Janmohamed as part of Classical Movements’ Eric Daniel Helms New Music Program.
