The American Arts Festival and YES Academy Lebanon is the only regional summer international performing arts education program for young people from all corners of the Levant. Drawing upon its extensive network of alumni, partner institutions and contacts in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt, American Voices will train and inspire 150+ aspiring musicians and composers in an intensive two-week training program by a faculty of 10 from leading US universities, orchestras, and arts organizations.
Participants will be drawn from our most talented and motivated alumni of YES programs in Lebanon and the region and program partners such as The National Conservatory and Notre Dame University of Lebanon, Iraqi Institutes of Fine Arts and Universities (Erbil/Salahaddin and Suleimaniya), Cairo Conservatory and Opera House Youth Training Program, and The Higher Institute of Music and Solhi Al Wadi School in Damascus, to name only a few.
