    I enjoyed all the wonderful pieces presented here i am so proud of this group. they are all extremely talented and hard workers. Dr. Hijazi along with Charles and Charbel Azzi donated so much of their precious time and talents year after year for our annual Lebanese American Festival. this year they will entertain us again for 3 nights throughout the festival October 7,8 and 9, 2011. God bless you for placing a spot light on a hidden talent in our community. Raymonda Chahayed Dagher
