Syrian exiles form German orchestramain
Rather than languishing in camps, Syrians in Bremen have found enough musicians in their midst to form an orchestra. The organiser is double bass player, Raed Jazbeh.
The Syrian Expat Phiharmonic Orchestra (Sepo) gives its first concert tonight, opening with Mendelssohn’s music from Die Heimkehr aus der Fremde, the homecoming from abroad.
