Ibrahim Masri of the Palestine Youth Orchestra is seen during a rehearsal at The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Most international musicians would balk at the notion of a two-day journey to final rehearsals past military checkpoints on alert for weapons smugglers - but for 19-year-old viola player Ibrahim Masri it's an occupational hazard.

The members say they cannot gather the full orchestra at home because Israeli restrictions make it too hard to bring together members from Gaza, the West Bank, Jerusalem and refugees abroad.

"We can play but it is hard to travel," said Ibrahim, who had to travel two days from Nablus in the West Bank through neighboring Jordan to reach Oslo, where the tour convened. "When we go to (the West Bank's) Birzeit or to Ramallah we pass through checkpoints. And especially when you have your musical instrument and get searched, you get asked 'What is this, why is this with you?'" he told Reuters TV. "It's always a hassle when you move from one town to another in order to meet." REUTERS/Eva Plevier

Aged 14 to 27, its players on this tour came from Jerusalem, the Israeli-occupied West Bank, and inside Israel itself. There were also Palestinian musicians from Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, and some non-Palestinians. However, unlike on previous tours, nobody from Gaza made this trip, orchestra manager Zeina Khoury said. REUTERS/Eva Plevier

None of the Saad brothers did army duty, despite coming from Israel's Druze Arab community, whose men usually serve in the Israeli military. "Once you play with your friends in Palestine you can never imagine yourself holding a rifle instead of your instrument," said Mostafa. REUTERS/Amir Cohen
