We were delighted to offer music sessions towards a performance for friends and family delivered by fantastic international musicians at the Syria Summer School in London. We made music with over 60 young refugees. Having fled war, they now face an unsettled future in the UK. Our programme enabled the young people to celebrate musical traditions of their homelands, create inspiring new music together and find ways to settle into their new home.
