The National Youth Orchestra of Iraq announced today that they had to cancel their US tour scheduled for this August. The press release says: « Instability in Iraq has made it impossible for orchestra members to complete the visa process that would allow them to travel, though thankfully all NYOI musicians are currently safe. We’re all looking forward to continuing our partnership with Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra in the future, and we encourage everyone to stay up to date with the orchestra by connecting on Facebook and Twitter. »
