The Israeli Chamber Project is a dynamic ensemble of strings, winds, harp and piano that brings together some of today’s most distinguished musicians in concert. Based in Israel and New York, the group was created as a means for its members to give something back to the community where they began their musical education and to showcase Israeli culture through its music and musicians. For their Meany debut, they are joined by Grammy Award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman, an artist consistently praised for his sensitive and intelligent musicianship, riveting stage presence and beautiful voice. This multifaceted program is a meditation on artistry across time, space and borders.

 

A band of world-class soloists that is not a muster of peacocks, but a hive mind in which egos dissolve and players think, breathe and play as one.
Time Out New York
