The International concert Series

The series hosts some of the most prominent musicians from throughout the world in solo and ensemble performances in the magnificent setting of Jerusalem’s historic YMCA. These concerts play host to leading young and upcoming chamber ensembles, including the Belcea, Jerusalem, and Doric quartets. In recent years the series has also included piano recitals from Steven Kovacevic, Ivan Moravec, Angela Hewitt, and Garrick Ohlsson.
