Muslims, Jews and Christians playing together …

(This is an 1 hour, 23 minute long video, in case you didn’t notice that.)

From the YouTube page:

We are delighted to present The Middle East Peace Orchestra at Bosjökloster — a unique collaboration between Arab, Jewish and Christian musicians playing concerts for peace. The orchestra, initiated in 2003 by Henrik Goldschmidt, principal oboist of The Royal Danish Orchestra, consists of Muslims, Jews and Christians from Israel, the Palestine Areas, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Scandinavia and the USA. They are all handpicked virtuosos representing the best of their tradition and furthermore they all have the courage to engage in this project. Ever since the very first concert in 2004 the Orchestra has been received with the greatest enthusiasm from both audience and press.
