Published September 20th, 2015 - 04:15 GMT

Some 30 musicians of Syrian origin had a practice session in the north-western German city of Bremen on Saturday in preparation for their first concert next week as an orchestra in exile.

The musicians - all professionals - had arrived from several European countries to rehearse for the Syrian Expat Philharmonic Orchestra concert to be held in the city on Tuesday.

The musicians emphasized that their aim was to show Syria as a nation of culture and not just a devastated, war-torn country.
