The Sryian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh has been allowed to return to the US at the end of a tour with Yo Yo Ma.
Kinan writes: ‘I was able after all to fly back to NY last night (as green card holders are no longer included in the travel ban). It is simply crazy.
‘It is incredible how one signature can change the lives of so many people.
‘I look forward to making more music, keeping one’s voice loud and clear is what one should continue to do I guess.’
