Winner of the 2011 Israeli Ministry of Culture Outstanding Ensemble Award, the Israeli Chamber Project brings together some of the finest young Israeli musicians to perform classic and contemporary chamber music of the highest quality. Based both in New York and Israel, we present chamber music concerts, educational and outreach programs, bringing something back to the people of Israel and something of Israel to concertgoers overseas. We believe in the power of music to heal and to transcend geographical and cultural boundaries, and that by leveraging our collective talents, we can create a powerful and meaningful experience for all people.
Our vision embraces values that include collaboration, partnership, and a strong cultural identity. Embracing these values, we present high quality chamber music programs in both major venues and remote locations where there is little opportunity to hear world-class live chamber music. We actively commission new works from young Israeli composers and reach out to underprivileged communities in order to provide educational programs, including masterclasses and lessons.
The Israeli Chamber Project is dedicated to bringing a unique musical experience to a worldwide audience. To that end, we:
- Present the public with high quality chamber music performances by an accomplished group of renowned young Israeli musicians
- Feature both classic and rarely heard chamber masterworks side by side with newly commissioned music by Israeli composers
- Perform at major concert venues as well as in remote locations where the public does not often have the opportunity to experience live chamber music concerts
- Provide educational outreach programs including masterclasses and lessons to underprivileged communities
- Increase the audience’s understanding of, and therefore involvement, with music by providing commentary from the stage
