09-09-2002 10:00 pm Paris - About 40 Arab and Israeli musicians, members of the Orchestra for Peace founded by UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Miguel-Angel Estrella, will play works by Mozart, Beethoven, Couperin and Shah Hosseyni at a performance tomorrow at UNESCO Headquarters at 8.30 p.m.

The orchestra includes musicians from Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Israel and the Palestinian Territories. The evening, under the patronage of several prominent French figures, will be introduced by Eve Ruggieri and is organised by the International Federation of Music for Hope and the Osted Elahi Foundation.

Argentine pianist Miguel-Angel Estrella, who spends much of his time bringing music into the lives of poor and marginalized people around the world, created the Federation Musique Espérence to provide everyone with access to music. The Ostad Elahi Foundation, named after an Iranian philosopher, poet and musician, works to promote tolerance and solidarity between people and to bring their cultures together.

Mr Estrella has conducted certain of his activities with UNESCO since he was named a Goodwill Ambassador for the Organization at the end of the 1980s. In this capacity, he has given benefit concerts for victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and has often played to promote human rights and peace, notably in Argentina, Bolivia, France, Norway and Burundi.


Journalists who would like to receive an invitation should call the UNESCO Press Service at 01 45 68 17 47
