Our Distinguished Patron

H.R.H. Prince Bandar Bin Sultan

September 21, 2003 is a milestone in the history of MESTO: Three years to the day when the orchestra had its first rehearsal (on September 19, 2000.) On that Sunday evening, we had the honor of performing a special concert for His Royal Highness Prince Bandar Bin Sultan while he was visiting in Los Angeles and the West Coast.

With the help of my friend Dr. Tarek Shawaf, who was instrumental in facilitating the event, the orchestra performed selective works to demonstrate the wide array of musical styles and talents. The Prince was so impressed that he offered his patronage. He addressed the director and the orchestra with warm and sincere expressions. Now, after three years of hard work, we feel that our mission is appreciated. This support is offered to us in addition to the support and love of our loyal audience.

We will celebrate this monumental event by working even harder, and by expanding our repertoire and planning events that were dormant for a long time. The time has come when we can reach out to a wider audience, farther and more expansive than Los Angeles. Let us allow many people to hear our music, and witness their music represented through us and our unique repertoire.

This is made possible thanks to the talent of our musicians and to the kindness of H.R.H. Prince Bandar Bin Sultan.

Thank you,
