Our supporters will know that we have invited children from the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music to play in Brighton Fringe 2016. Four of these children are students at the Gaza Music School and three of them are students at ESNCM branches in the West Bank. Earlier this year we launched a fund-raising appeal, which raised an astonishing £7,319, surpassing our initial target of £6000. More is still needed if we are to achieve our aim, so please join us for an evening of music and comradeship to support this exciting and worthwhile project.
