Description: Winner of the 2011 Israeli Ministry of Culture Outstanding Ensemble Award, the Israeli Chamber Project brings together some of today's most distinguished young Israeli musicians for chamber music concerts and educational and outreach programs both in Israel and abroad. A dynamic ensemble comprising strings, winds, harp and piano, the Israeli Chamber Project has quickly made a name for itself through its passionate musicianship and creative programming. Based both in Israel and in New York, the ensemble was created as a means for its members to give something back to the community where they began their musical education and to showcase Israeli culture, through its music and musicians to concertgoers overseas.
Venue Description: Located at Kaufman Music Center, Merkin Concert Hall hosts music and theatre events, including the series Broadway Close Up, and more. Its innovative programming, intimate scale and near perfect acoustics have earned it a reputation as one of New York City's finest concert venues.
