Together with Doha College, we were delighted to bring back the COBIS Music Festival in a blended format, with both an online competition and an in-person event from 12-14 May 2023.

More than 120 students from 9 schools in 7 countries gathered in Doha, Qatar for the first in-person Music Festival in four years, with 26 schools taking part in the online Composition competition. A huge thank you goes to Steph Gomaa, Director of Music at Doha College, and the team there, for making this event a huge success. Full results of the in-person and online competitions can be viewed below. Click here to read Doha College's blog about the Music Festival 2023.
