Our partners Sounds of Palestine participated in the 2nd Winter Music Academy of the Palestine Philharmonie. They had two intensive and exciting weeks of practice and performances. Some of the teachers performed in a chamber music concert together with the visiting musicians from Paris. For one week, all the children from Sounds of Palestine’s Al-Majdal Orchestra rehearsed a mixed repertoire of Arabic and Western Classical music with French conductor Nicolas Simon. In the second week, the rehearsals continued in the Convention Palace in Bethlehem, and the children were joined by professional musicians, advanced music students, and the Amwaj Choir.

Many thanks to the Palestine Philharmonie for making this possible and giving so many children and teachers this learning opportunity!
