Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I inform you of Iyad Sughayer’s upcoming piano recital on the 8th of November at 7:30 pm at the Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Iyad is a brilliant young Palestinian-Jordanian musician who has been recently awarded the Gold Medal at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire.

As the recently elected chair of Palmusic UK, I wish to celebrate with you Iyad’s achievement by asking you to join me at this special event. 

I attach information about the concert which will be followed by a Reception for the gold ticket holders to allow our strongest supporters to meet Iyad personally in the Brockway Room at the Hall.     

Some of you may recall that Palmusic UK is a charity, formally known as The Friends of the Edward Said National Conservatoire of Music. We believe strongly that music enhances the lives of young Palestinians facing major difficulties and offers them hope for a better future. We help talented young musicians with scholarships in the UK and Palestine, distance learning in Gaza by London teachers (a new project), and in other ways such as providing music books and musical instruments as well as tuition.   

Iyad has been of considerable help in supporting our charity.  Our web-site is .

Please forward this to anyone you think might wish to come and/or be willing to support us. 

With best wishes,


Heba Zaphiriou-Zarifi 

Chair of Palmusic UK
