US Embassy Support and Interesting Article
On another note, I highly recommend this article about an orchestra in Egypt consisting of blind girls and women. Hopefully Cultures in Harmony will work with them some day. In the mean time, we are honored to work with the NGO Bridge to plan our Egypt project this year. This project will take place in Cairo and Alexandria from June 25 to July 4, 2012, and will involve collaborations with musicians from a variety of genres. Bridge was previously a partner in an exciting 2010 project called the Hip Hop Connection.
Both our Egypt and Tunisia project are under the umbrella of "Connecting Cultures through Counterpoint," a project in Egypt, Tunisia, and Pakistan that I launched with this lecture at the Institute of Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin in February 2011.
