“The Jerusalem Youth Chorus incorporates proven strategies and considerations in its efforts to empower through music, promote mutual understanding, and truly create a new community. It is the only Israeli-Palestinian youth chorus in Jerusalem which combines music and dialogue in this way. These strategies will allow the Jerusalem Youth Chorus to harness music's power as a force for change in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the resulting expression of common ground has the potential to change the public discourse about what is possible in its stead.”
