Round up of creative music for 2012/13

The last three months – even though some of it summer holiday – have been packed with work and events.

The last two weeks of June saw our end-of-the-year concerts. With 363 students in the academic year 2012/13 the Conservatory is now holding we cannot feature all in one final concert.

A special part of one of the concerts was the performance of the two creative music groups led by Ashton Mills from the Clamor Sound Project. The craziest band ever, guys!

This is how it worked in that creative music workshops. And that is how it’s performed.

Students absolutely loved working with Ashton and trying out the new, creative ways - and we all miss him dearly! A huge thank you all your work from all Beit Almusica!

In addition to the Beit Almusica groups, Ashton also supported us in bringing creative music making to schools. Each school would have one intensive week of music workshops that mounted in a special performance at the respective schools in Shefa’amr and Eibellin.

Our main final concert was a huge success. All visitors, students, teachers, parents and supporters said there was a clear step forward even compared to last year’s concert. But why describe? Just make up your own mind with a taste from the festive concert 2013.

We’re also very proud to announce that five students successfully finalized their matriculation exams in music, all reaching excellent grades. You can listen to one of the graduates here. This is the place to say thank you to all those who supported us through all this time, to the students for their hard work and dedication, to the parents for their support and back up, to the teachers for their hard work and to you for helping us in making it possible.


Beit Almusica is currently undergoing a strategic planning, and we will not continue the AACT project in its current form. Based on comprehensive evaluation and consultation we decided to develop another project strategy that would allow us to bring more music to more Palestinian children.

You can help us in achieving that – and we will keep you posted! Thank you for all your support, much of our work would not be possible without great people like you.
