“…a band of world-class soloists…in which egos dissolve and players think, breathe and play as one.” (Time Out, New York)
The dynamic Israeli Chamber Project, comprised of strings, winds, harp, and piano, is based both in Tel Aviv and New York. The ensemble was created as a means for its members to give something back to the community where they began their musical educations and to showcase Israeli culture to concert goers overseas.
On its tours of Israel, the Project performs at major venues as well as in remote locations where access to live classical music is limited. The ensemble offers lessons and masterclasses to students of all cultural and economic backgrounds, and it continues to support emerging Israeli composers by commissioning new works.
Performances include Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Morgan Library and Museum, the Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York, Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall, Ottawa’s Chamberfest, Montreal Chamber Music Festival, and the Vancouver Friends of Chamber Music. The ensemble’s critically acclaimed debut CD, Opus 1, was released in 2012 on the Azica label. Guest artists who have appeared with the Israeli Chamber Project include the Guarneri String Quartet’s Michael Tree and Peter Wiley, the Cleveland Orchestra’s Principal Flutist, Joshua Smith, as well as international soloists Antje Weithaas and Liza Ferschtman.
