The Galilee String Quartet coming to Sutton

Sutton for Peace and Justice are delighted to be bringing the Galilee Quartet to Sutton on Monday 6 October.

An evening of Western classical and Arabic music followed by a Q&A session with Omar Sa’ad, viola player and conscientious objector, will take place at Sutton Grammar School from 7.30 pm.

This will be their only performance in south London/Surrey on their 9 date tour of Britain in 2014.

The Galilee Quartet is Omar Sa’ad (viola), Mostafa Sa’ad (violin), Ghandi Sa’ad (violin) and Tibah Sa’ad (cello).

The three brothers and one sister are from a Druze family from the village of Maghar in the Galilee in Israel. All four are students at the Beit Almusica Conservatory, and they have performed throughout Palestine and in many cities of Europe. In 2013 they played with Nigel Kennedy at the Proms in the Albert Hall.

Omar the oldest brother gained international support as a conscientious objector after refusing to serve in the Israeli Army and ‘occupy his own people – the Palestinians’. Omar was sent to military prison, but eventually exempted from military service after refusing the draft seven times. Mostafa has been summoned to present himself for military service and next year he’ll be imprisoned for his conscientious objection.

No entry charge, donations will be taken.  Please reserve your place by email to salehmamon@hotmail.com or text message to 07931 786134.
