Watch: An Optimistic Message from The Israeli Chamber Project
During this time of Coronavirus outbreak, the Israeli Chamber Project has to postpones all upcoming concerts, but the company’s violist, Guy Ben-Ziony offers a message of art and hope.
Artistic Director Tibi Cziger & Executive Director Assaff Weisman: “Our last public performance took place just over a month ago and we will hold on to the memory of sharing music with you – the intimacy, vulnerability, and excitement inherent in that communal act – until we can see each other again.
Over the past few weeks our artists have dispersed across the globe, from Israel, to Finland, Germany, Canada, and the U.S. and have taken to caring for their young children, elderly parents, and to dealing with the harsh economic realities faced by so many of us. With performances cancelled and plans for a new international festival we were set to launch this summer on hold, the realities of a concert-less world are sinking in.
In our thirteenth year our ensemble is a family, and as an organization we have committed to stand by our artists and continue to pay them for performances cancelled by the pandemic. If you are able to help support our ensemble and artists through this unprecedented crisis we would be eternally grateful. Please visit our website to pledge your support, and remember that no amount is too small”.
