After consideration of online applications from interested students, a judging panel visited Palestine in April to audition 28 students from Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah, Jerusalem, Gaza (by video-link), Bethlehem and Hebron.

The winning students Sari Tarazi (14, from Jerusalem), Rashed Zarour (15, from Jenin), Ibrahim Masri (14, from Nablus) and Lamar Elias (14, from Bethlehem) attended the week-long Pro Corda Chamber Orchestra course, playing repertoire including Beethoven’s 7th Symphony and Mendelssohn’s Hebrides overture with young British musicians, before spending five days based at the Royal Academy of Music working closely with professional musicians towards a public showcase concert at the Mosaic Rooms, Earls Court 29th July.
