In 1999, Daniel Barenboim and the late Palestinian Edward W. Said created a workshop for young musicians from the Arab world and Israel. As a result, The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra was created, made up of Arab and Israeli musicians, together with members from other countries. One of its main missions is to show that music can break barriers.Since Edward W. Said’s untimely death in 2003, his widow Mariam C. Said has kept the project going with Daniel Barenboim. Now a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization based in New York City, The Barenboim-Said Foundation (USA) also funds other programs, including a music school in Ramallah, Palestine, and academic workshops in Israel.
