Alfan helps make Zabur history

The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir’s world premiere of the oratorio, Zabur, by Mohammed Fairuz was a smishing success. And part of that success was due to the Center for Interfaith Cooperation’s Alfan Ghanim, who served as the ISC’s Arabic pronunciation coach. Way to go, Alfan, you were part of history!
