Polyphony Education was co-founded by Nabeel Abboud-Ashkar, a classically trained violinist who serves as Executive Director of Polyphony Education in Israel. Polyphony has created programs where young Arabs and Jews in Israel can come together through classical music.

It is a model for global cooperation based on cultural exchange and education, communication and partnership, in the belief that creating new channels for engagement is essential to sustaining a just and peaceful society. Polyphony programs reach more than 9000 Arab and Jewish youth on annual bases, and provide training and employment for over one hundred teachers in Israel.
