Filasteen Young Musicians Orchestra
The Filasteen Young Musicians Orchestra is the flagship of Barenboim-Said Foundation Ramallah. The orchestra was founded in 2015 and consists of the young students of the Barenboim-Said Foundation, as well as other Palestinian musicians from the area. The orchestra is based in Ramallah, Palestine, and it regularly performs at the Medical Relief Society and other venues.
The Barenboim-Said Foundation – a strategic partner of ADMAF – was established in 2003 by late Palestinian intellectual and scholar, Edward Said, and the renowned pianist and conductor, Daniel Barenboim. The founders believed that music enhances human life and, through the creation of the Foundation, they aimed to make classical music education accessible to Palestinian children and young adults. Through its activities at the Music Center in Ramallah, the Foundation focuses on Palestinian children and young adults regardless of their social or economic background, and offers the highest level of education.
