The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet, founded in 2009 by a group of young Israeli musicians, is recognised as a leading chamber ensemble, with a rich repertoire of multidisciplinary works, combining music with movement and theatre. Each season the Quintet gives more than 30 concerts at Israel’s most prestigious venues, including the Jerusalem Music Centre, the Tel Aviv Stricker Conservatory and the Tel Aviv Museum. The Quintet has performed abroad, giving concerts in Switzerland, France, Germany and China. The group also reaches out to underprivileged communities in the periphery with regular programmes. The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet receives support from the Ministry of Culture and Sport, and has received grants from the Rabinovich Arts Foundation, the Haifa Arts Foundation, the Ronen Foundation and the Payis Culture Foundation. Their debut album was released in 2016, followed in 2018 by a second album, with pianist Yaron Kohlberg, entitled ‘Live”.

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.
