After Rescue, Gaza's Only Grand Piano Makes Public Debut

Sunday, 25 November 2018 11:38 AM EST

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The only grand piano in the Gaza Strip is debuting to the public for the first time in over a decade after its restoration.

Japanese and local artists played the piano and sang to a rapt audience Sunday at a theater nestled in the Palestinian Red Crescent Society's building.

The Japanese government donated the piano 20 years ago. But a 2014 Israeli airstrike in northern Gaza destroyed the theater that housed it. The piano survived but was unplayable and left in the abandoned theater.

A Belgian charity, Music Fund, sent in experts to restore the piano after it was discovered. The four-year project was completed last month.

The piano survived three wars and a crippling Israeli-Egyptian blockade on Gaza since the Islamic militant Hamas group assumed power in 2007.
