The Music for Peace Foundation, founded to provide opportunities for underprivileged children and youth, has been operating in İzmir, Bursa and the Princes' Islands and through its center in the Edirnekapı quarter of Istanbul's Fatih district since 2015. Touching the lives of thousands of children over the years, the foundation created the project "Young Luthier Masters" in the autumn of 2017 with the support of the Societe Generale, a French multinational banking and financial-service company.
The project includes musical instrument maintenance, repair and production workshops together with training programs supervised by experts at the atelier in Edirnekapı. Through the yearlong project, young students have the opportunity to learn the details and difficulties involved in making musical instruments.
In line with the project's program, Amati viola produced in the workshops will be played during the children and youth concert to be performed by the Music for Peace Orchestra on April 23, 2018. The Music for Peace Project aims to introduce young luthiers to national and international musical environments and to create an instrument brand that world-famous artists and orchestras prefer.
