In memory and tribute to our late Roula El Mir El Ayoubi, an active supporter and active citizen,  Amhurst Republic has adopted an ALTO BOWL in Eb. and gave it the name Roula. The Longplayer is a one thousand year long musical composition. It began playing at midnight on the 31st of December 1999, and will continue to play without repetition until the last moment of 2999, at which point it will complete its cycle and begin again.
