The Israel Festival and the Felicja Blumental Music Centre are proud to present Peom Balev – a Saturday morning concert series featuring original music by prominent Israeli composers and musicians.
The year, the concerts will be devoted to works in styles that encompass the musical pluralism in Israel. The works will be performed by vocal ensembles – Sirenot Woman Vocal Ensemble that combines the music of Israel with East Asian musical traditions, Cecilia Mixed Vocal Ensemble that focuses on composers who dedicated their works to biblical themes, as well as the Israel Chamber Project for outstanding musicians, which will debut original new works alongside Israeli classics.
The three ensembles perform in Israel and worldwide to critical and popular acclaim. Over the years, they received different excellence awards, including the Minister of Culture Prize.
