Our Seminars Program

Seminar for String Players in Israel

The seminar program of Keshet Eilon was initiated in 2002 with the purpose of fostering string instrument playing in Israel. The seminars are held twice a year and are attended by 60 – 80 violin, viola, and cello players who have at least four years of playing experience and their current teachers’ recommendations. The participants come for three days of intensive music study and represent all Israeli society sectors, including the Arab community.

Each student receives three individual lessons from instructors who come from leading academic institutions in Israel and abroad. Besides, the students participate in large ensemble performance and chamber music groups, and enrichment activities such as listening to concerts, lectures, and sporting activities. A professional violin maker checks their instruments and gives guidance during the seminar on how to maintain them. At the final concert, students present their skills as soloists and also participate in an ensemble performance.

The Keshet Eilon Music Center provides the young players with every opportunity to practice and perform to fulfill the seminar program’s assignments. Both students and instructors have full access to the Keshet Eilon music library, which contains a rich collection of music, audio, and visual materials.

The center makes every possible effort to assist students in need of financial support for the seminar fees through scholarships funded by generous donors.
