Pinchas Zukerman had a dream: to make a concert tour of Israel, the PA and Jordan. He embarked on the tour with Canada's National Arts Centre Orchestra. They were to give concerts in Tel-Aviv, Ramallah and Amman. Zukerman was enthusiastic about what was to be his first performance in an Arab country, and even more excited about the master class that was to be given in Ramallah. The orchestra landed in Israel just after the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada. The concert in Tel Aviv was held as planned, in front of a packed audience, but Zukerman learned that given the situation in Ramallah, the master class would not be held. With the collapse of the cease-fire negotiations in Paris, the visit to Jordan was also cancelled.
