The Palestine National Orchestra (PNO) was first set up in 1936 but was disbanded when Israel was founded in 1948.
In 1993, a group of musicians started a Palestinian national music school in Ramallah that has developed into the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music. It now has branches in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nablus and Gaza.
In 2010, the conservatory decided to revive the national orchestra by bringing musicians together from all around the world.
The Palestine National Orchestra has continued to bring Palestinian musicians together to express their love of music and show its power as a unifying force, especially for the Palestinian community.
