"Say hello to the world for us" offers a compassionate and refreshingly unique look at the West Bank through the eyes and music of two young, maybe slightly naive, but intensely passionate violinists. It follows their travels from Amman to Bethlehem and back, as they perform and give workshops to eager children along the way. As the trip unfolds, they reach a new understanding about what it means to be Classical musicians and human beings.
Lauren and Holly both study the violin under professor Milan Vitek at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Lauren was born and raised in Amman, Jordan, and is fluent in Arabic. Holly was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, but spent most of her childhood in Missouri.
