Caravan Orchestra Awarded 2018 Shimon Peres Prize

The Caravan Orchestra, a hybrid of the University's Music Department and Yiddish Summer Weimar (Germany) has won the 2018 Shimon Peres Prize of the German Foreign Ministry for outstanding contribution to the shaping of German-Israeli relations.

Dr. Abigail Wood, Head of the University's Music Department describes the Orchestra as "one of the most exciting, creative and exuberant music projects I’ve ever been involved in, mashing up Arab music, klezmer and pretty much anything in between."

A special thank you to the Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation for providing scholarship support for students at the university's music department.
