Kudos: Saudi Arabia Holds First Gender-Mixed, Public Concert

Saudi Arabia, a country in which women have few, if any, rights, held a concert of classical music, presented by a German Quartet. What’s amazing is that the concert is the first-ever public gathering of a mixed-gender audience for musical enjoyment. You can read more about the event at MSNBC.

While the audience was mostly an expatriate audience, I’m always pleased to see progress in a country dominated by religious law that contravenes a vast majority of civil liberties.
