On Friday, 5 October, Al-Nour Wal Amal Orchestra will perform at St Josef Church for Franciscan Padres and Sunday, 7 October, at the Lycée Français du Caire.

The orchestra was created by Istiklal Radi, the first director of Al-Nour Wal Amal Association. The late Samha Khouli, former president of the Academy of Arts and former dean of the Cairo Conservatory, provided the association with an academic basis for the creation of professional musicians.

Today, under the artistic supervision of Ines Abdel-Daim, chairperson of the Cairo Opera House, and conducted and trained by Aly Osman, the orchestra consists of 38 musicians, representing mainly third generation graduates of Al-Nour Wal Amal Music Institute.

The orchestra performs extensively in Egypt and has seen significant success internationally. Lately the orchestra performed in Belgium and Austria.

The orchestra will perform once again in Egypt, in November, at the British Council before it embarks on its next international trip, this time to the United Arab Emirates, the same month.
