The Rejuvenation of Heichal Hatarbut

The Campaign for the Rejuvenation of Heichal Hatarbutand the Future of The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

In August 2011 the IPO Foundation and the American Friends of the IPO launched the campaign to renovate Heichal Hatarbut and to enable the Orchestra to meet the challenges of the 21st century with innovative programming, expanded musical education and community outreach projects and commitment to our world-class standards.

We are continuously seeking to expand our family and supporters in an effort to secure the Orchestra's future and embodiment of excellence in classical music. We invite you to be in touch with us if you are interested in learning about the numerous opportunities to participate in this historic time by linking your name with the Orchestra's renewed home.

This ambitious project would not have been possible without our partners in the renovation project - the Tel Aviv Municipality and Mayor Ron Huldai.

We extend our deepest gratitude to Charles Bronfman, who so generously donated the lead gift to the campaign, as well as to our friends in Israel, the United States, Europe, Australia and South America for their extraordinary generosity.
