The Elaine and Sir James Wolfensohn

International 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.

The world of classical music and the State of Israel lost two of their most ardent devotees with the passing of Sir James and Elaine Wolfensohn z'l. Jim and Elaine were music lovers, idealists deeply committed to music and Jerusalem's cultural heritage as vital areas for engagement and inclusion across communities. As such, they were the Jerusalem Music Centre's greatest ambassadors, as JMC represented the confluence of their deepest passions. Show more
