Salam to Syria fosters collaboration between artists of Syrian descent and artists from other countries. The Salam to Syria chamber music concert series celebrates the diversity of Syrian culture and heritage while facilitating mutual respect and appreciation between Syrian immigrants and host people. The series features artists of Syrian descent and collaborators from various ethnic backgrounds.
