Music – Joyful, Smart and Healthy
Music is a storage and treasure for cultural heritage. Playing music and especially singing lead to the roots of people’s cultures. As rhythm and tone, like fine arts, touch the inner life and soul of human beings, music can trigger a change in people’s way of thinking, feeling and willing.
In the SEKEM Holding, companies and cultural institutions, all major meetings, lectures and festivals open either with classical European live music or traditional Arabic live music. This prepares the participants for a successful meeting, as they start to listen actively and carefully, which is the basic skill for an interactive process.
The teachers receive music lessons for singing and playing instruments, so that they can pass on these skills to their students. A SEKEM choir for advanced voices performs on stage during many internal celebrations.
