Scottish Friends of Palestine Present Palmusic UK Ensemble
Scottish Friends of Palestine Present Palmusic UK Ensemble - St Pauls Cathedral, Dundee – 7 July 2019
An ensemble of exceptionally talented young musicians from Palestine will come together to play a concert in St Paul’s Cathedral in Dundee on Sunday 7 July at 7.30 pm. (The concert is part of a series of three concerts, the other two being in Glasgow and Edinburgh.)
Guest artist and rising star Iyad Sughayer, pianist, will join Omar Saad on viola, Tibah Saad on cello, and Lourdina Baboun on violin for an uplifting programme of Mozart and Mahler piano quartets, and Arabic folk music arranged by the ensemble.
The three concerts will raise money for Palmusic UK, the charity that is supporting Omar, Tibah and Lourdina with scholarships to study at top British conservatoires (in Glasgow, Birmingham & Manchester).
Entry to the concerts is free, but members of the audience will be invited to make a donation at the end of the concert.
In all its work, Palmusic UK aims to build bridges through music between the UK and Palestine. The charity works closely with the Friends of Edward Said National Conservatory of Music in Palestine to nurture the musical talent of young Palestinians. As well as providing scholarships to study at British conservatoires, Palmusic UK enables other projects that support musical education and professional development in and outside of Palestine. (More details about Palmusic UK’s work can be found at www.palmusic.org.uk )
This concert tour in Scotland is produced by Palmusic UK in partnership with the Scottish Friends of Palestine and Dundee-Nablus Twinning Association. It has also been generously supported by The City of Glasgow, which has been officially twinned with Bethlehem since 2007.
Refreshments will be available at the interval of the concert.
