We are planning to bring the unique Egyptian Light and Hope Orchestra (Al Nour Wal Amal Association) to London to perform in concert halls and London schools. The ‘Light & Hope Orchestra’ is a 36 piece chamber orchestra from Cairo. The players are all blind or partially sighted women, who learn music from braille and then perform from memory.

Performers will include Fadi Deeb, piano (Palestine), Basma Abdel Rahim, violin (Egypt), Kaamel Salah-Eldin, cello (Egypt), Simon Smith, violin (UK), and Riyad Nicholas, piano (Syria).
