A note from Zuhal

If you know anybody who might be able to help us raise the money for the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq, do get in touch. It’s an amazing project that really deserves to happen.

Dear All,

First of all, I’d like to thank you for your continuous support. As each day passes by, we’re getting closer to the date we have scheduled for the Summer Academy leading to the historic debut of the first permanent National Youth Orchestra of Iraq; this very thought is truly exciting, but it also means that we have to work extremely hard to make it happen.

I’ve had a chance to promote the orchestra on several occasions a little over two weeks ago in England, we have had lots of response from people who wanted to help, we also had some interest from music tutors to help with the our online mentorship programme. It’s also where I’ve had a meeting with the British Council, and they have promised to provide seed support

The reality is we still need over £100k to fund the 09 Summer Academy and the tour in the Caucasus, and it’s your chance to take part and help us achieve our dream in having our own National Youth Orchestra. You are able to help no matter who you are or where you come from, whether you’re a professional musician or a believer in this cause, it’s YOUR chance to contribute to a life-changing experience through music. Make a donation now through our justgiving page:


It’s not too late to be involved in this project, in fact, your help is needed more urgently than ever before; and remember: every little contribution makes YOU a participant in spreading peace, bringing hope to a war-torn region and inspiring the whole world.

Thank you, for everything you do.
