Balamand Got Talent Too!

On Feb. 24, the MY Club held its annual Made in UOB Talent Show with the participation of media celebrities Wissam Sabbagh, Maguy Bou Ghosn, Robert Frangieh, and Pascale Sakr as jury members.

Antoine Helal won first prize with a piano recital of works by Chopin; Omar Al Ahmad from the Akkar campus won the second prize with a delightful vocal performance of Arab tarab, and the Parkour Sports Team claimed third prize. In addition to delighting the large crowd of friends, colleagues, and parents, the winners received $500, $300 and $200 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places respectively.

The show included 12 contestants who displayed their talents in singing, piano and guitar performances, as well as in stand-up comedy. Each contestant received feedback from the jury members who lauded the students for their performances. “It was not easy to choose the finalists, “ said one of the jury members, adding that “the level of competency is very high and the talents are very diversified.”

In addition to the parkour team, the contestants included Omar Al Ahmad (singing), Paul Ohanian (piano), Ralph Abi Raad (singing), Houssam Rouaiheb (piano), Charbel Ibrahim (stand up comedy), Ghina & Samer (singing), Antoine Hilal (piano), Sami Salloum (singing), Wahib Jeitani (guitar), Marianne Barakat (singing). ​​​
