About Roy Amotz

Roy Amotz was born in Jerusalem in 1982. His teachers in Israel include Vladimir Silva, Moshe Epstein, Yossi Arnheim and Avner Biron. He graduated degrees in musical performance and early music in Berlin, both with honours and was recently invited to perform with the prestigious Akademie für alte Musik, Berlin. Roy founded “Zoom Quartet”, with which he won the Biagio-Marini Competition in Germany. Additional prizes include the International Flute Competition in Greece and the Pergamenchikow Prize in Berlin with “Trio Vis”, with whom he created the genre breaking “64 Things Show, inspired by John Cage.

Roy is a member of the acclaimed Meitar Ensemble, specialised in performance and recording of contemporary chamber music, with whom he has performed in Israel and abroad in numerous festivals. Since 2013 he serves as the principal flautist of the Geneva Camerata. His performances as a soloist include the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Verbier Festival Orchestra and the Scotland BBC Symphony Orchestra.

In september 2017 Roy has created a new platform for making classical music, aiming to bring this music to wider audiences, and create a transformative experience for audience and performers alike: “Music and Beyond”. The first project in this framework is called Fantasies, and combines food and music in an original manner, while the audience is blindfolded, in order to let the other senses be experiences in their own right, without the domination of the visual engagement.
