Palestinian Teenagers Play Orchestra in London

(August 14, 2013)

There's a group of Palestinian teenagers that play violin and cello that traveled to London to play Vivaldi's Four Seasons in the Royal Albert Hall.

This is them playing back home in Palestine:

Their music teacher is a soft-spoken Arab man, and this is their music building:

There's a famous music conductor called Nigel Kennedy who invited about twenty of the students to come to London and play a concert called BBC Proms (or something like that.) It's a very famous and gee event, based on what everyone was saying, and it is played in the Royal Albert Hall, so I guess that must be extra special. Here are the musicians on the bus in London:

And now they are practicing with Nigel Kennedy. They kept interviewing the Palestinian teens, and each one kept bringing up Nigel Kennedy and singing his praises.

More practicing:
 Here is Nigel Kennedy close up:

 A lot of times when Arabs are playing music, the cool thing to do is open your mouth as far as it will go and start bellowing. Here is one of the young musicians doing just that:

And here he is in the concert hall, still going at it!

 You should have heard the music they are playing in these pictures, it sounds beautiful!
 The spectators in the fancy Royal Albert Hall are pleased:

Then they all took the bus and played right outside the British Parliament.

This has got to be one of the coolest things you can do with your life!
