saving gaza’s grand piano (in the crossing continents series)

“It has been hidden away in a dusty corner of an abandoned theatre, unplayed and almost forgotten – a magnificent instrument allowed to moulder away in a territory whose Islamist rulers banned public performances of music.
But now Gaza’s only grand piano is getting a new lease of life. A small Brussels-based charity* is restoring it to its former glory and at the same time is working to bring music back into schools.
With Hamas control steadily weakening the charity has begun a unique project to train teachers in Gaza to re-introduce music into the curriculum – not through music classes but through subjects such as mathematics and geography. It is helping disturbed children in this war torn territory to concentrate – and it is exciting teachers.
Tim Whewell gets exclusive access to the story of Gaza and its grand piano.”
