For the second year, The Palestinian Centre for Rapprochement betwen People organizes the Annual Music Concert fo the Tunes for Peace Students.
Ths year the concert was organized on Saturday November 28, 2015 in Beit Sahour, at the Greek Catholic School hall which included performances by the Tunes for Peace students.
The concert has several goals, including giving the students a chance to perform on a stage in front of an audience after practcing and playing only in closed rooms. Additionally, the parents will have a chance to see their children playing live music on stage.
Students did solo performances on their respective instruments and then the Tunes for Peace Band performed three music pieces. The audience consisted of mainly, the parents and friends of the students and members of the board of PCR.
The project currently serves 75 students from the Bethlehem area varied in age, sex and religious background. The students receive training in 5 instruments, Violin, Guitar, Oud, Kanoun, Piano in addition to percussions. Like every year, the Tunes for Peace band, has new members and we are hoping to be ready for international performances in the near future.
The project started in 2009 with support from the Municipality of Rimini in Italy, through the Social Center A La Calle. The project is also supported by Pilgrimage People, a registered company in the UK, which pilgrimage organizes trips to Palestine.
The concert aims to encourage the students to learn more and to break the stage fear, and to keep the parents updated with the performance of their kids and the updates of the project.
