Homage to the first years of the Israel Festival
In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Israel Festival, which started as an international classical music festival in Caesarea, the Eden-Tamir Center under the direction of Dror Semel presents four concerts inspired by the repertoire performed in the festival’s early years.
Established in 1968 by Alex Tamir and Bracha Eden, the Eden-Tamir Center is a pastoral oasis in the picturesque Ein Kerem neighborhood. The Israel Festival is proud to collaborate with the center for the fifth decade, and to present the finest classical musicians in thrilling and varied concerts.
