The Magic Flute

Beer Sheva

Educating on Music

The Sinfonietta sees musical education for the younger generations as a central mission due to the role it plays in developing creative thinking, imagination, concentration, and listening skills. Its various special concert series target preschools, elementary schools, high schools, the Ben Gurion University, and several academic colleges in the Negev.

Magic in the Negev

Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, instead of four live concerts, a video-tape was made of The Magic Flute concert performed by the Israel Sinfonietta Beer-Sheva with conductor Eitan Schmeisser and soloists from the Israeli Opera. Forty elementary schools in Beer Sheva received a link to watch the broadcast, which was screened during music classes and under the guidance of their music teachers. The entire project was carried out at the peak of the pandemic between the months of October 2020 and June 2021. The Israel Sinfonietta Beer-Sheva is the only orchestra in Israel that has managed to sustain its educational projects during the pandemic, and it was the support of PLFA that enabled it to do so.
