Teachers concert of the Barenboim-Said Foundation

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

Last Saturday, Cinema Jenin had the great pleasure to host an amazing classical concert organized by the Barenboim Said Foundation from Ramallah. In the course of the last months, professional musicians from all over the world had teached young Palestinians how to play the instrument of their choice. During the performance, those skilled children could show their great progress playing violin, flute, clarinet and cello together with their teachers and young musicians from Germany. In front of an enchanted audience of around 100 people from Jenin and the area, they presented music by Bach, Beethoven, Fernati and several others.

The Barenboim Said Foundation’s activity in the Occupied Territories started in 2004. Now, it does not only manage a kindergarden but it also cooperates with several other NGOs to introduce Palestinian children to classical music. It organizes orchestral workshops as well as regular concert series and has recently produced the first Palestinian opera, The Sultana of Cadiz. The objective of their projects is based on a music education that enables, as far as possible, a balanced cognitive, social and emotional development, offering through music new channels of expression and the development of their imagination, creativity and personality.
