Voices of Hope: MECI Performances in 2009
March 1, 2010
MECI's dedication to global and local art and music continues to generate enriched awareness, positive storytelling, and brings respect and dignity to Palestinian culture. The MECI 2009 summer camp was very active with two performances conducted at the public hall in the Municipal Center under the sponsorship of the Mayor of Beit Rima. MECI students performed Alice in Wonderland and created their own interpretation of an overture to the Phantom of the Opera. Over 200 parents, village residents, local officials and the heads of other village schools attended each performance. MECI counselors and mothers made costumes and the art students under the direction of MECI's art counselor created the staging. MECI's student band attired in pink Alice in Wonderland t-shirts accompanied the performers. This winter, MECI sponsored a successful rendition of "Cinderella" and performed a traditional Palestinian folk wedding. Art and Music remain a crucial form of self-expression and provide an outlet for young people who rarely experience a diversion from the oft-miserable conditions they face daily.
