They come from the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel, but also Melbourne, Athens, and Berlin. Together, they’re united under one mission: to promote the creativity and talent of young Palestinian musicians worldwide. An offspring of renowned Palestinian-American intellectual Edward Said’s National Conservatory of Music, the Palestine Youth Orchestra has played some of the world’s greatest concert halls. As the ensemble prepares to gather in France for their annual tour, musicians aged between thirteen and twenty-six open up about identity, overcoming hurdles, and their will to resist until the end of their bows.

Stick around for live music and a Q&A with special guests, moderated by The Royal Conservatory’s Mervon Mehta.
