The Keshet Eilon Music Center was founded in 1990 on Kibbutz Eilon, located near the Lebanese border. It has since evolved to become a beacon of excellence in classical music, with a program aiming to encourage gifted young string players from Israel and worldwide. Many of its alumni have risen to become sought-after soloists with orchestras performing internationally as well as teachers in prominent music conservatories.

World Class Teaching
The centerpiece of Keshet Eilon’s work is its Summer International String Mastercourse. Led by an internationally renowned faculty, this program nurtures aspiring young musicians from more than fifty countries. In addition, two periodic seminars offered to promising young Israeli string students take place over the course of the year.
Music Changes Everything
Keshet Eilon’s belief in music as a bridge between cultures and nations has prompted it to reach out to young musicians in the Arab community as well. Over the years, Keshet Eilon has developed strategic collaboration with several Arab music centers, inviting their students to participate in its seminars and make music together with Jewish musicians. What better way to overcome barriers than through music?
