Bringing music to Israel
Bringing Israel to the world
Through musical excellence, the Israel Philharmonic is Israel’s leading cultural ambassador
2019 marked a pivotal moment in the history of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) as Maestro Zubin Mehta handed over the baton to Maestro Lahav Shani after an unprecedented 50 years as Music Director.
With the outbreak of the pandemic our plans to support this momentous new era were brought to a standstill as the orchestra was forced off stage for the first time in its history.
As the world reopens up, the orchestra is back on stage and is excited to be presenting. it’s 2021 season.
Lahav Shani, our Conductor & Musical Director is carrying us into the future.
He shares in the artistic vision, musical excellence and humanitarian values of the musical giants before him – Huberman; Toscanini; Bernstein and Mehta – the qualities that now embody
the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
