Initiative Music Connected

A Music Orchestra Project for talented and special needs children was launched on August 22 at Al Qattara Art Centre in Al Ain. The project will offer a two month period of musical training by German music therapists for children and teens from age six.

This will culminate in an orchestral concert on November 14 at Al Qattara where it is hoped around 250 gifted and special needs youngsters will perform.

The initiative, being supported by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), Al Shibla Middle East, UAEU and Business and Higher Investment Group AG, is designed to bring music therapy to special needs children.

“Music therapy has been proven to be a powerful tool for helping children with developmental disabilities improve their interaction with the world and increase their learning skills,” said Al Ain resident, Birgit Maria Kemphues, Founder of Initiative Music Connected.

Families who want their children to be part of the integrated orchestra must apply before September 15. Application forms are available in Al Qattara Art Centre and by email request to AlAinMusicUAE@gmail.com. For further details, contact Anne Wolter on 056 644 7238. Information on the initiative is also available on www.facebook.com/MusicAlAin.
