The Jerusalem Music Centre (JMC) was founded in 1973 by legendary violinist Isaac Stern and Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek, with the assistance of Yad Hanadiv (a Rothschild foundation) and the Jerusalem Foundation.
Through our unique position as an independent organisation, not tied to any one location or institution, the JMC is able to offer year-round musical programmes for outstanding young musicians from all across the country.
The Jerusalem Music Centre host dozens of concerts each year. The centre presents concerts in three concert series The International Series at the YMCA, the unique 7 at 7 series and the Youth At The Centre series as well as special concerts and events.
The International Series of the JMC (former 'Music at the Y' series) is comprised this year of 12 concerts by internationally renowned artists, including a Winter Mini Festival – in co-operation with the Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival.
