The Israel Philharmonic founded Sulamot to create social change by opening the world of music to children from underserved communities throughout Israel.
One of our Sulamot graduates, Gavriel, was recently accepted into the competitive IDF Orchestra, fulfilling his dream to become a professional musician. Upon winning this prestigious position, Gavriel stated that “Sulamot always had my back. The music brought me out of the eerie place I was in. Because of Sulamot, all my world changed for the better.”
Another student, Netanel Sosonov, was born blind in his left eye and began playing the harp at the Gordon School in Tel Aviv through their music program for visually impaired children. He credits the Philharmonic’s Sulamot program with fostering his love of the instrument and hopes to one day join the ranks of the Israel Philharmonic.
Sulamot provides 1,200 children annually with free private and group instruction, complimentary instruments, performance opportunities in student ensembles and access to the Israel Philharmonic.
It’s thanks to the generous support of American donors like you that we can continue to provide these life changing programs for disadvantaged and special needs students like Gavriel and Netanel. Can we count on your support this year? Every gift will impact the lives of these young people.
