The Israel Philharmonic’s Keynote Program for music education and community outreach was initiated by the orchestra in 2000.
Over 20,000 children and youth of all ages take part every year in diverse activities through Keynote. They are exposed to classical music through encounters with individual members of the Philharmonic and orchestral concerts in concert halls around Israel.
From kindergartens through colleges and universities, the orchestra reaches out to young audiences through intimate sessions in the classroom, specially produced concerts for schools at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv, community projects, master classes with guest artists and members of the orchestra and individual instruction.
The program serves all Israeli citizens: Jews, Christians and Muslims and thus promotes openness, tolerance and mutual respect.
The Keynote program is made possible through the generous support of the American Friends of the Philharmonic Orchestra and with the assistance of Ms. Sophie Philip-Yuval Education Ltd., Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality
