Music amid destruction in the devastated Gaza Strip

Gaza may be a warzone, but everyday life for its inhabitants has to continue. For some of those growing up in the violence, playing music has become an important source of relief. RTD goes to Gaza City to follow music school students as they prepare for an end of year performance. Their experiences of war unite them as much as their love of music. They have survived the destruction, endured the horror of shelling and seen people die at first hand.  Some have even come close to death themselves. Powerless in the face of such violence, music gives them hope that one day the conflict will end.
