That evening, the third pre-launch concert was performed in front of a completely full house (the auditorium has over 600 seats), and was deemed to be a big artistic success by the artists as well as the audience. The Maged Sorour Ensemble for Arabic Music, accompanying the young Egyptian rising star Rehab Omar, showcased several beloved songs of Um Kolthoum as well as other classical instrumental works linked to her. This event was under the patronage of the Egyptian Cultural Office, sponsored by the Oman Arab Bank and the Al Bustan Palace Hotel, and with the Media Partnership of Shabiba, Alroya and Al Wisal.
