Along with the sacred music, the future events will also featured a Jazz festival and the Lyric festival “Il Bel Canto”.
In addition, the C.I.D.I. promotes, at the Kassr Annoujoum, chamber concerts that include classical, contemporary and jazz music, performed by either Italian or international ensemble. Concerts are usually followed by a buffet dinner. For scheduling information contact the secretariat of C.I.D.I. (admin@cidifes.org) or the Kassr management (info@kassr-fes.com).

The performances are accompanied by a vin d’honneur. For information and reservations contact the management of the Kassr (reservation@kassr-fes.com or admin@cidifes.org).
