“I recognize the courage required to bring children
together from Israeli and Palestinian communities to find commonality in music as a very powerful and effective
beginning towards peace.”
– Yoko Ono
“Co-founder Nabeel Abboud-Ashkar is a genuine leader. He has built the program from the ground up and inspired so many to follow him.”
– Renée Fleming
“Music is one of the ways that we can bridge perceived cultural divides…I was very excited about coming [to Nazareth to play with the young people of Polyphony].”
– Branford Marsalis
“When I learned about Polyphony, I was so mesmerized, the only thing I could ask was if I could join and help by playing with them. It’s an Arab and Jewish endeavor and when they play music, there is nothing more harmonious and beautiful.”
– David Broza
