Daniel Barenboim Founds Music Academy For The Middle East
Following in the mold of his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, a Seville-based ensemble of young musicians from Israel and the Arab states, the conductor and Mideast peace activist is establishing a conservatory-cum
academic institution for up to 60 resident fellows from the Near East. The school will be housed in a former warehouse for the Berlin State Opera, where Barenboim is artistic director.
