We worked on the regular repertoire, with emphasis on the coordination between us.

September 2018

 

We began the month with a rehearsal on 4.9 in which we ran through our entire repertoire. We especially focused on songs that we planned to play later in the week, in the Day of Interfaith Encounter.

 

In the Day of Interfaith Encounter on 6.9 we performed in front of all its participants and it was very nice!

 

Then we entered a period of Holidays and did not meet until the end of the month.

 

 

October 2018

 

During this month we had only one encounter, on 2.10. In this encounter we hosted a reporter from NPR who came to interview and record us for a story about our activity. Here is the story: http://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2018/11/01/trump-cuts-funds-palestinian-peace-groups

 

Later in the month we experienced cancelations due to illnesses and other constrains, but in November we came back to regular rehearsals.

Another music group was formed in February at the Felm Center. We aim to reach the level of performing publically and thus attracting mroe people to the circles of interfaith encounter.

During the first months we held four encounters, on 13.2, 20.2, 6.3, 13.3.

In the first encounter we held a short round of introduction and then started to sing and play together. In this encounter we were: Yuval (percussion), Marwan (Oud) and four singers (Shani, Yael, Muna and Limor).

From among the other singers only Muna came to another encounter, but she also stopped coming, so currently it is only Yuval, Marwan and Shani. We are looking for additional players and a singer to sing in Arabic.

 

In the encounters we worked on the following songs: Erev Shel Shoshanim, hine Ani, Hali Hali Hal, Nizoz Ha'ahava, Yatir Yatair, Ze Hazman Lisloah. The atmosphere was very good and the encounters very successful.

 

Our immediate aim is to recruit more players and a singer, while continuing working on additional songs.
