A spring garden party April 9th to bid farewell to Maestro Fakhouri.

Fouad Fakhouri is an internationally acclaimed Lebanese-born American conductor and composer who has been credited with raising the artistic standards of orchestras that he conducts while dramatically increasing symphony attendance. Fakhouri currently serves as Music Director and Conductor of the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra (North Carolina, USA)—an appointment which he received in 2004.

He is the fifth Music Director in the symphony’s 60-year history, and his work continues to receive accolades for “musical accuracy” and “emotional intensity.” “When he waves his baton, you get the feeling that Maestro Fakhouri is summoning forth musical notes born in each musician’s soul,” writes the Fayetteville Observer.

Fakhouri has been conducting internationally for nearly two decades, starting with a performance at age 22 in the International Jerash Festival of Jordan. In 1999, he conducted the first West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in Weimar, Germany, as one of only three students invited by world-renowned pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim to participate in his conducting master class.
