West-Eastern Divan Orchestra

For almost 20 years, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, founded by Daniel Barenboim and Edward W. Said, has been known throughout the music world as a global ambassador for cultural understanding. The young artists from Israel, Palestine, Syria, Egypt, Iran, and other Middle Eastern and North-African countries bring to the table a willingness not only to engage for the sake of music, but to develop an open ear for the experiences and perspectives of their colleagues, through conversation and discussion.
