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.

2022 Spring Seminar

Following a successful Winter Seminar, in which we hosted 40 string players from all over Israel, Keshet Eilon continues its preparations for the Spring Seminar that will take place between March 31 to April 2, 2022. We all hope to mount this seminar in a similar format to the previous one, but since there is still some “Covid uncertainty,” we’ll announce its full details later.

We hope to see you all during the year – in the Keshet Eilon next summer international Mastercourse (July 24 – August 11, 2022), the Spring Seminar for Israeli string players, and the annual “Rainbow of Sounds” concert series at the Bar-Uryan Hall.
