HEARTBEAT unites Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians to develop critical awareness, harness music’s transformative power and become leading voices for change.  

This Spring 2016, two of Heartbeat’s most experienced youth musicians will tour the U.S. alongside Heartbeat’s Founder and Director Aaron Shneyer for a series of intimate events. Through their powerful performances and personal stories, Heartbeat musicians reflect their inspiring hope and constructively shed light upon the struggles of life amid conflict, sharing the transformative experience of co-creating music and fostering critical understanding together. Each event offers an extraordinary window into the lives of these courageous young artists, highlighting the power and success of the Heartbeat program and exploring the great peacebuilding potential through partnership development.

This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. Suggested donation at the event or in advance.

All proceeds benefit Heartbeat's integrated music and dialogue programs for Israeli and Palestinian Youth.
