The Israeli Chamber Project featuring pianist Assaff Weisman, violinist Itamar Zorman, violist Guy Ben-Ziony, clarinetist Tibi Cziger perform Rebecca Clarke’s Dumka, Sebastian Currier’s Verge, Bohuslav Martinů’s Three Madrigals, and W.A. Mozart’s Kegelstatt Trio. Based both in Israel and in New York, the Israeli Chamber Project was created to showcase Israeli culture through its music and musicians.

Israeli Chamber Project

Now in its second decade, the Israeli Chamber Project is a dynamic ensemble comprising strings, winds, and piano, that brings together the most distinguished musicians for chamber music concerts and educational outreach programs both in Israel and abroad. Based both in Israel and in New York, the ensemble was created so performers could give back to the communities where they began their musical education and to showcase Israeli culture. The ICP’s tours have garnered rave reviews and established the ensemble as a major artistic force on both sides of the Atlantic. These tours include appearances in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, New York, London, San Francisco, Ottawa, and Beijing, as well as in remote towns where access to live chamber music is extremely rare. ICP is a strong advocate for music education and for expanding the chamber music literature by commissioning both new works as well as new arrangements of existing works.
