Keynote Program

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 Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv, community projects, master classes with guest artists and members of the orchestra and individual instruction.

The Buchmann-Mehta scholl of music

The Israel Philharmonic and Tel Aviv University established the University School of Music named after Josef Buchmann and Zubin Mehta. For the first time, these two leading institutions collaborate in training future generations of musicians in Israel and help promote their careers in Israel and abroad. The School, based on the existing Academy of Music at Tel Aviv University, includes an Excellence Program for ca. 100 outstanding full-scholarship students. Principal Israel Philharmonic musicians are on the School’s faculty and Zubin Mehta is its Honorary President. The establishment of the School was enabled thanks to a generous donation made by Mr. Josef Buchmann, a staunch friend of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and vice chairman of the Tel Aviv University Board of Governors.
