our mission

Welcome to PalMusic UK

PalMusic UK facilitates the growth of talent and creativity.

We bring Palestinian musicians to study and perform in Britain and send British musicians and teachers to Palestine, to enhance the cultural life of both nations.

We foster close ties with the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music, the vibrant institution that teaches Classical and Arabic Music in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Nablus and Gaza, while maintaining outreach programmes throughout Palestine.

Read more about what we do


We have been inundated with requests to help during these difficult times. 
We are appealing for donations to support the music education in ESNCM’s branches in Gaza and the West Bank, bringing hope and opportunities to the local communities, which have been severely impacted by the escalating violence and Covid restrictions.

If you would like to show support, please consider making a donation,
no matter how big or small.

“There are many bridges that music forms between silence and sound, bridging internal spaces of creativity with the audiences. PalMusic is but one of these bridges, stretched over a river of Palestinian culture and civilisation, facilitating a living Palestinian history expressed in music”.

- Heba Zaphiriou-Zarifi, former Chair of PalMusic UK
