Palestine Youth Orchestra – UK Tour (2016)


Equally at home with Western and Arabic music, the Palestine Youth Orchestra (PYO) has a unique position amongst youth orchestras internationally. It was established by the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music (ESNCM) in 2004 with the vision of bringing together talented students from all over Palestine and the Palestinian Diaspora. This tour was presented by Palmusic UK.
