Israel Philharmonic Orchestra with Gianandrea Noseda, conductor

 “fast, sleek, and dynamic” – L.A. Times

Carolina Performing Arts is delighted to welcome one of Israel’s oldest and most influential cultural institutions to Chapel Hill for the first time. Since its founding in 1936, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra has dedicated itself to presenting the world’s greatest music to audiences in Israel and around the world.

Founder Bronislaw Huberman, a Polish violinist, spent countless hours persuading first-chair musicians of Eastern European and German orchestras, who had lost their jobs as a result of Naziism, to emigrate to Palestine. In doing so, Huberman created an “orchestra of soloists.”

Under the esteemed leadership of Zubin Mehta, the ensemble continues to absorb new immigrants and serve as a gathering point for musicians from all over the world.

Classical music performances are made possible by The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. We thank the Trustees for their visionary generosity.
