As in previous production, the sixth annual Mesopotamian Night served a feast of Assyrian musical songs backed by a 55 piece orchestra.

This years' highlight was the 52-person choir; one of the largest Assyrian choir ever assembled outside the Middle East to sing classic Assyrian songs.

These musical events, trimmed with clusters of sweet and sentimental songs by past and present composers, have offered something for every taste.
