Chamber Music Center – 2022-23 Concert Season

The Chamber Music Center has been operating under the auspices of The Ted and Lin Arison Israel Conservatory of music, Tel-Aviv, since 1988, presenting annual series of chamber music concerts and recitals for an audience of subscribers and the general public, featuring leading musicians and ensembles from Israel and abroad. Over the years the Center has become one of the most long-serving, well-known and respected Classical music institutions in Israel.

The Center is one of Israel’s most prominent institutions for new generations of Israeli musicians, and for its ongoing relationship with top local musicians. At the same time, it plays a key role in hosting the best ensembles in the world, while developing partnerships between them and Israeli musicians.

With its original programming, that includes works not frequently played in Israeli concert halls, and also works by Israeli composers, the Center also makes a substantial contribution to expanding the musical horizons of the local public.
