Few people can say they have played "Bint al-Shalabiya" using plastic and glass bottles, but the kids from the Salma al-Sayegh school in Beirut's Ashrafieh can happily boast of that achievement. One group of kids, all aged around 10 years old and each armed with their own piece of "junk," played the intro to the well-known Fairouz song in Hamra's Al-Madina Theater Tuesday, carefully guided by the conductor who had taught them their parts. Each school eventually produced one "trash orchestra".Following Tuesday's concert, there was a ceremony to award the title of "Best Mural" – a competition that was "very hard" to judge, according to the jury, led by Abou Zaki.She assured the crowd that even though only one school could win that title, all of the kids were winners.
