Israel Philharmonic Orchestra to perform in Monaco this September

An exceptional concert by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Lahav Shani will be held at the Grimaldi Forum in September followed by a gala dinner.

The event will be held under the High Patronage and in the Presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.

The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, originally the Palestine Orchestra, was founded on 26th December 1936 by Polish-born Jewish violinist and musician Bronislaw Huberman, who foresaw the Holocaust. Huberman persuaded 75 Jewish musicians from major European orchestras to immigrate to Palestine, creating what he called the “materialisation of the Zionist culture in the fatherland” on the sand dunes of Tel Aviv.

Over the decades, the orchestra has toured the world, performing with the likes of Placido Domingo, Barbara Fritolli, and Pinchas Zukerman, and featuring in Paris, London, Madrid and Bucharest for its 75th anniversary tour.

On 13th September, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Lahav Shani will take to the stage in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco at 7pm for a performance of Joseph Haydn: Symphony No 104 ‘London Symphony’, and Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 1.

The concert will be followed by a gala dinner in the salon Le Génois.
