The teenage Israeli and Palestinian singers of the Jerusalem Foundation's YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus led by Musical Director Micah Hendler performed to a packed house at The Aldwych Theatre in Central London.


The young singers were on a week long tour to the UK which included the concert " A Musical Celebration for Peace" at the Aldwych Theatre, a live performance on BBC 2's Newsnight, and a Storytelling Concert at St.

Catherine's College, Oxford with the Oxford Combined Chapel Choir. Click here to hear the Newsnight performance in the final few minutes of the programme.


Jerusalem Foundation UK Director Susan Winton said: "It has been a tour de force. We are thrilled to have hosted this impressive group of young people from the different communities of Jerusalem, particularly at what is such a difficult time for them at home. I would like to thank everybody who has helped to make this tour such a success."
