THE AFGHAN WOMEN'S ORCHESTRA - PUBLIC CONCERTS

Despite the obstacles they face each day to play music in their country, the musicians of the Afghan Women’s Orchestra “Zohra” study music at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM). Aged between 14 and 20, they are the first women to learn music in more than 30 years in Afghanistan. For their first international tour they perform across Switzerland with the Orchestre du Collège de Genève. 

Moved by the critical state of musicians and music education in his native country, Dr. Ahmad Sarmast, a visionary musician and the first Afghan to obtain a doctorate in music, initiated a ground-breaking project to revive and promote music education in Afghanistan.

This mission stemmed from Dr. Sarmast’s strong belief that music can play a significant role in transforming the lives of young people and in rebuilding Afghanistan through providing a platform for vocational training, emotional healing, democratization, and the establishment of a just and civil society. After years of dedication, Dr. Sarmast established a partnership with the government of Afghanistan – specifically the Ministry of Education – and raised the funding necessary to build the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM) which was inaugurated in 2010. Under his leadership, ANIM has flourished and is expanding each year through new infrastructure, increasing student enrolment, and the ambition to develop new branches in other parts of the country.

Join us for this momentous event to celebrate hope and dialogue across cultures.  All proceeds benefit the ANIM.
