UNITING

We unite young Iraqi musicians from all backgrounds, Sunni, Shi'ite, Kurdish, Turkomen, Assyrian, Arab, male, female, through their intense passion of music.

 

EDUCATING

We audition annually by YouTube and deliver proper music teaching and cultural experience to create a youth orchestra in which Iraqis, and everyone involved, can take pride. 

 

CONNECTING

We go abroad as Iraq's premium cultural ambassadors, working alongside young musicians from our host countries, and performing in major concert halls.

 

REBUILDING

We use our experience to rebuild Iraq's culture by teaching, creating new ensembles and writing music.
