The power of music…

No sooner does renowned conductor Eduard Sporck agree to form an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra than he is drawn into a tempest of raw emotions. The young musicians, impacted their entire young lives by war, suppression and the constant risk of terrorist attacks, align behind their best violinists – the Palestinian Layla and the Israeli Ron – forming two columns of mistrust that are manifested both on and off the stage. Can Sporck convince these talents to set aside their hatred and make music instead of war?

Sponsored by Harvey Kornblum Foundation
