Welcome to Keshet Eilon

Keshet Eilon Music Center and its String Masterclasses were founded in 1990 on Kibbutz Eilon in Western Galilee. It focuses in fostering and promoting young string musicians from Israel and abroad. The Center’s musical activities include International   String Mastercourses, intended for performers at the highest level, every summer, periodic seminars for Israeli string players and a yearly qualitative concert series for the benefit of music lovers from all over the Western galilee.

“Keshet Eilon Stay Home”

Have you seen our latest video project?

“Keshet Eilon Stay Here!” This is Itzhak Rashkovsky’s (Music director) announcement at the end of each concert during the Summer Mastercourses, asking all participants to stay for a meeting discussing the musical program of the upcoming days. Over the years it’s became one of our catch phrases. Due to the Corona days, we’ve changed the phrase – “KESHET EILON STAY HOME!” – and we started to collect videos of our alumni playing pieces, recorded at their safe quarantined homes dedicated for Keshet Eilon.

Watch it on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram.
