Barenboim-Said FRIENDS

One community. No categories.

Barenboim-Said FRIENDS is our international circle of friends that sees itself as one community.


With your contribution you support the international educational and musical projects of the Barenboim-Said organizations. We use your donation to support the activities of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, the Barenboim-Said Academy, the Pierre Boulez Hall, the Barenboim-Said Center for Music Ramallah, our Musical School Berlin, as well as to provide high-quality instruments for outstanding talents of our educational institutions.


In our FRIENDS newsletter, you will find out what your donations have achieved and for which activities of our projects funding is currently needed. In line with our guiding principle "Education through Music", you will receive advance information on special concerts and events that focus on inspiration and dialogue. We introduce ourselves and selected Barenboim-Said FRIENDS and bring you, if desired, together. Individual, exclusive experiences such as house concerts, fireside chats, private lectures, trips with and to our projects or artist encounters can be made possible upon request – just contact us.


Joining our circle of friends is very simple. You donate annually by bank transfer or online and confirm that you would like to be included in our FRIENDS network. You will receive a donation receipt for your donation (tax-deductible in Germany) – on request also via our partner foundations in the USA or Great Britain according to the regulations applicable there. Your access to our FRIENDS network expires automatically at the end of the year if you have not made a donation. A formal cancellation is not necessary, but we ask you to inform us in time so that we have the best possible planning security.
