The Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva chamber orchestra was established in 1973 by a group of Jewish musicians who had recently immigrated to Israel. The Conductor Laureate and former Musical Director of the orchestra was Israel Prize winner, Maestro Mendi Rodan, of blessed memory. Currently the Sinfonietta’s Musical Director is Maestro Nir Kabareti.
Today the Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva is synonymous with excellence. Its diverse members, new and veteran residents of Israel of all ages, have joined forces to create a polished professional orchestra that performs famous classics as well as originals by modern composers.
Throughout the years, hundreds of world class musicians have performed with the Sinfonietta, including Vadim Repin, Leonard Bernstein, and Isaac Stern, among others.

Its various special concert series target preschools, elementary schools, high schools, the Ben Gurion University, and several academic colleges in the Negev.
