Wajd musical group was founded by the Office of the Dean of Students at Bethlehem University in the beginning of the 2009 academic year, under the supervision of Mai Jaber, the Assistant to the Dean of Students. This band represents Bethlehem University both within and outside Palestine.

The band consists of 20 instrumentalists and singers led by Mr. Tamer Sahouri, professor of lute instrument at the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music.

The band has participated in several performances around Palestine and throughout the world, for several occasions, including national, cultural, and social events in Palestine. It was the only musical band from Palestine that participated in the Eighth International Universities Musical Festival in Sousse, Tunisia in July 2010.

The band was named “Wajd” in memory of Wajd Za’rour, a saxophone player and Hotel Management student who died in a car accident in January 2007. His dream was to establish a musical band at Bethlehem University.

Wajd holds two large performances yearly at Bethlehem University, as well as many other performances at Bethlehem University and throughout the region.
