Galilee Chamber Orchestra

One of the most exceptional youth-orchestras in the world, the Galilee Chamber Orchestra, is going on a tour of Germany in summer 2019: thirty-nine highly talented young Palestinian and Israeli musicians will be performing together under the direction of the pianist Saleem Ashkar, who was born in Nazareth and now enjoys an international career.

On July 31, 2019, as part of the Young Euro Classic Festival, the ensemble will give its debut performance in the Konzerthaus Berlin with the world première of “Overcoming” by Wisam Gibran, a piece on the theme of courage. The programme will also include works by Haydn and Beethoven that the orchestra will then perform again at the start of August in Hanover, Osnabrück and at the Rheingau Musik Festival in Wiesbaden.

The Galilee Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1992 under the aegis of the Polyphony Foundation to bridge the division between Arab and Jewish groups in Israel through music and a worldwide cooperation network based on cultural exchange, dialogue and partnership. The internationally acclaimed Palestinian-Israeli pianist Saleem Ashkar, who has always had a heartfelt desire to foster and encourage young musicians in his home country – regardless of their religious orientation – has directed this unique orchestra of young.
