As the all-female orchestra commenced the evening with the national anthem ‘Ishy Bilady,’ a giant glass pendulum in the atrium artistically created a portrait of Sheikh Zayed. Guided by conductor Monica Woodman, the orchestra’s performance captivated patients, healthcare professionals, and visitors across two floors of the hospital.
