Palmusic UK in association with the Amos Trust present:
The Galilee Quartet – Strings of Life
We are delighted to announce the second concert in a series of performances in association with Amos Trust to launch the Just Walk.
Following their monumental UK Tour with the Palestine Youth Orchestra last summer, the four young musicians from Galilee return to the UK with their family quartet for two special concerts in London (4th June) and Oxford (6th June).
The Saad brothers, Omar (viola), Mostafa (violin) and Gandhi (violin), shot to international prominence at the 2013 BBC Proms, appearing with Nigel Kennedy and the Palestine Strings, and winning the hearts of audience and critics alike. Their 18-year old cellist sister Tibah completes the Galilee Quartet, which has been praised for its richly diverse and soulful programme of Oriental and Western music for strings and voices.
With charismatic flair and poise, these dynamic teenage musicians from Meghar village, near Nazareth, will perform an exciting music programme, featuring music by Beethoven, Fairuz, Mohammed Abdel Wahab as well as their own compositions.
The Quartet will be joined by the Palestinian jazz and Arabic singer Maya Khaldi (London concert only).
