Being equally at home with Western and Arabic repertoire, the PYO maintains a unique position amongst youth orchestras internationally.Following successful tours in France and Oman, they perform music by Beethoven, the pop-inspired Metal by British composer Graham Fitkin, songs by legendary Arab singers Fairuz and Um Kelthoum, and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

Open Bethlehem

 

Tuesday 14 June 2016, 7.30pm
St Nicolas Church Hall, Bury Street, Guildford GU2 4AW

This is a deeply moving account of a city in crisis. Leila Sansour returned to Bethlehem in 2005 to make a film about her home town, soon to be encircled by a wall.

The film reveals a city of great beauty and political strife under occupation. As well as telling a personal story, this documentary charts the creation of an international campaign with a vision to keep Bethlehem as a thriving Palestinian centre with a prosperous spiritual, cultural and commercial life.

The film runs for 90 minutes and there will be a Q & A session with
the director Leila Sansour after the film.

You have no doubt been following the recent furore surrounding allegations of anti-Semitism within the Labour Party.  Sections of the media have called into question the legitimacy of any criticism of Israeli policies towards the Palestinians and sought to seriously undermine the Palestine solidarity movement.  PSC has issued a guide for members and supporters to aid us in defending our right to support the Palestinians without facing accusations of anti-Semitism.
