H H Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned will be present at the Qatar Symphony premiere tonight at The Ritz-Carlton, Doha at 9.30pm. A second performance will take place tomorrow night.

At both events, an orchestra of 80 musicians from Russia and other Eastern European countries will perform the composition called Qatar Symphony. Accompanying the orchestra will be a multimedia show on the nation's past and its vision for the future.

The Qatar Symphony is a Qatar Foundation musical initiative composed by Dr Salem Abdul Kareem and it narrates the story of Qatar. It comprises four movements, each one about a particular phase in the development of Qatar: "The Beginning," "The Dream," "Challenge and Achievement," and, finally, "Forward." It is the first time in the region that a classical musical piece has been composed to tell the story of a nation.
