Palestine Symphony for Solidarity!

The Palestine Symphony from MEM Music combines European classical movements with martial and Middle Eastern themes to bring us a powerful reminder of the history of Palestine.  These invigorating compositions are a great accompaniment for planning  or participating letter writing campaigns and other peaceful political action.  We can be the change!
