Story
Tagline
Reconciling Iraq through music
Introduction
We meet once a year to perform together internationally as Iraq's top cultural diplomats. Then we go home and perform and teach in the Kurdish String Orchestra, the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra, the Babagoorgoor Chamber Orchestra, Kurdistan String Quartet, Orchestras in Erbil, Ranya and Suleymaniyah, the Baghdad school of Music and Ballet, and Institutes of the Fine Arts throughout Iraq.

Survived war, dictatorship and terrorism
Education
  • Youtube
    Instrumental music
    During the most recent war, many teachers fled Iraq, leaving young Iraqis without any guidance or support. Unstoppable in the face of conflict, religious disapproval and terrorism, young Iraqis who could find an instrument, taught themselves by downloading what information they could from the internet. The National Youth Orchestra of Iraq is one of the few programs available that provides world-class music education to today's Iraqi youth, who are directly responsible for rebuilding culture in Iraq.
