The 2nd AOF will be opened with a Gala concert at Al Hussein Cultural Centre in the heart of the old downtown of Amman followed by a reception. The AOF will also feature a symposium, titled ‘’An Eye on Music in Education”, featuring lecturers and inspirational speakers from the local community and abroad. The symposium will announce the results from the various workshops carried out in 2017 and that will be carried out in 2018 with schools in Jordan and abroad. The aspiration for the official launch of this programme in 2018 is to grant a student a scholarship to study abroad.
Zeina launched the Amman Opera Festival to plant the seeds towards growing the opera culture in Jordan and the Arab world, and perhaps inspire the building of a purpose-built Opera House in Jordan's Capital, Amman, joining the company of other Arab states such as Oman and the UAE.
