Ori Kam studied in Israel with Chaim Taub, in New York with Pinchas Zukerman, and with Wilfried Strehle in Berlin. Awards include prizes at the Geneva and Tertis competitions. He made his debut at age 16 with the IPO under Zubin Mehta, and has since performed as soloist with orchestras such as the National Symphony (USA) and Sinfonia Varsovia. From 2004-6 he was a member of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. A dedicated chamber musician, he is the violist of the Jerusalem Quartet. Independently, he has appeared with leading artists such as Isaac Stern, Daniel Barenboim, Sir András Schiff and Itzhak Perlman. He participates in festivals including Salzburg, Verbier, Tanglewood, Aspen and Schubertiade. In 2007 he released his recording of the Bruch Double Concerto (Berlin Classic), followed by a recording of 12 Fantasies by Telemann. Since 2009 he has held a teaching position at the University of Geneva.

With deepest regret, we announce that this year’s Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival, which was due to take place from 31 August to 4 September, has been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions. Sadly, it is not possible for us to welcome the artists in compliance with the current quarantine regulations and for the first time in our twenty-four year history we are obliged to cancel the Festival.

We know how painful this is for the artists who are now unable to perform, for our audiences who were looking forward so much to this Festival, and for us, the Festival team who were working so hard to realise these wonderful concerts despite the ongoing health crisis. 
We look forward very much to seeing you all next year, our dear musicians and audiences.
