Israeli Music Festival
The “Israeli Contemporary Music Festival” is a unique enterprise of the Jerusalem Conservatory Hassadna for the advancement of Israeli contemporary music. As an institution that educates the future generation of musicians in Israel, Hassadna recognized the need to introduce young artists to contemporary Israeli music and those creating it. Young musicians are raised primarily on traditional classical music and are not sufficiently exposed to wonderful music currently being written locally. The Festival recognizes the importance of contemporary Israeli composition and aims to bring musicians, teachers and students closer to this rich repertoire and to provide a stage for Israeli composers.
