BBAC Supports the Beiteddine Art Festival as a Sponsor of the Carla Bruni Concert
BBAC supported the 33rd annual Beiteddine Art Festival, organized by Mrs. Noura Jumblatt, as the main sponsor of the Italian-French singer’s concert and France’s former First Lady, Carla Bruni, whose performance was one of the most anticipated at this year’s festival.
The concert was held at the large and magnificent 200-year old Beiteddine Palace where Bruni took the stage and enchanted the audience with her sensual voice and warm smile, performing classic rock, country and jazz from her fifth album, “French Touch”. Among the audience were Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, former Lebanese President Michel Sleiman, as well as many other prominent personalities.
A cocktail reception followed the concert in the majestic inner courtyard of the Beiteddine Palace where BBAC’s Chairman Ghassan Assaf and his spouse, along with their guests, mingled with the former French presidential couple Sarkozy and Bruni, in presence of many other distinguished invitees.
