“Symphonyat” in Casablanca: A 2nd edition that will honor Moroccan music

Born from the meeting between Karim Taissir and Tom Cohen, respectively Moroccan passionate about Moroccan music and prestigious conductor, the philharmonic orchestra Symphonyat performs at the hippodrome of Casablanca for a 2nd edition, scheduled from September 29 to October 1.

According to the organizers, this new edition aims to “put Moroccan music in the spotlight, make it universal, transmit a unifying message from Morocco”. It will be marked by the participation of several artists, namely Latifa Raafat, Mehdi Nassouli, Sanaa Marahati, Maxime Karoutchi, Sama Choufani and many others. “This year, in order to allow as many people as possible to rediscover and appreciate Symphonyat, 3 dates are planned from September 30 to October 1, including a jazz fusion evening bringing together Karim Ziad and Omri Mor”, notes the same source.

Building on the great success of the first Moroccan performance in September 2019, Symphonyat, made up of more than 40 talented musicians and inviting exceptional voices to pay tribute to Moroccan musical heritage, is once again preparing to thrill the public.
During its first performance in Casablanca, Symphonyat seduced more than 1,600 people, thanks to re-orchestrated covers of Moroccan classics from the Chaâbi, Malhoun, Judeo-Moroccan, Amazigh, Gharnati, etc. repertoires. Led by Tom Cohen, conductor emeritus, the orchestra was able to magnify and revive titles that have entered the history of Moroccan music.

“We show that when music reaches people’s hearts, it erases all differences, whether of faith, language or nationality,” confides Karim Taissir, initiator of Symphonyat. “Watch and listen to Symphonyat, that’s what we manage to achieve despite the turmoil and tension around the world. Then imagine what we can create in times of peace!” adds Tom Cohen, artistic director of the philharmonic orchestra. Organized by the Avempace Association, Symphonyat is a unique musical experience, supported by several partners.
