German violinist leads tour of Syria’s refugeesmain
Stefan Arzberger, formerly of the Leipzig String Quartet, is taking a small ensemble to Jordan for a tour of Syrian refugee camps.
‘The idea (is) to set a sign of solidarity for the many people who had to flee from crisis-hit areas in the region. And the best way to do so was by using the universally applicable language of music, which contributes at the same time to international understanding,’ Arzberger tells the Jordan Times.
Others taking part are cellist Konstantin Pfiz, violist Béatrice Muthelet and clarinetist Marco Thomas.
They will play eight concerts in Azraq Refugee Camp, Irbid, Mafraq, Salt and Amman.
