AFIPO’s support was pivotal in founding KeyNote, the IPO’s classical music education and community-building programs — and it is proud to continue supporting the initiative to this day. KeyNote has a diverse reach, bringing programming to more than 22,500 children a year in Jewish, Arab-Israeli, immigrant, religious, and secular K-12 Israeli schools. Its transformative programs encourage a shared passion for culture in the next generation while promoting openness, tolerance, and mutual respect through music. Click here to view videos.

Sulamot — Music for
Sulamot, which means both a ladder and a musical scale in Hebrew, was initiated to create social change by opening the world of music to children from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds in Israel. Through this innovative and inspiring music education program, Sulamot enhances students’ cognitive ability, educational attainment, and ability to work collaboratively within a group.
More than 1,200 disadvantaged and special needs children receive free private and group music instruction, participate in student orchestras, and take part in an annual performance at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium. Click here to learn more about Sulamot on their website.
Ticket Subsidy Program
Each year, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s Ticket Subsidy Program provides free and substantially discounted concert tickets to more than 20,000 individuals, including young concertgoers up to the age of 35, pre-professional music students, senior citizens, and new immigrants.
We also welcome IDF soldiers. By opening our doors for free, we give these heroes hope and inspiration, a refuge from their challenges, and a community to call home.
We sponsor IPO concerts in schools and community venues in diverse and often underserved neighborhoods of Tel Aviv—offering musical experiences, for free, that unite cross-cultural, non-traditional audiences around music.
The IPO gives performances with world-renowned conductors and soloists in expansive open spaces in Tel Aviv that are free to the public, making classical music available to all.
