The Jerusalem Symphony Anniversary Fund


We are investing in building capacity and raising the funds required to launch dozens of new initiatives by the end of our 85th season in 2023, which would coincide with the 75th Anniversary of Israel’s Independence, and would be celebrated with galas, festivals, exhibitions, and an international tour. Following the success of the 85th Anniversary, we plan to transform the Jerusalem Symphony into the most vibrant and exciting cultural institution in Israel on time for our centennial celebrations in 2037/38.

Every contribution into the Anniversary Fund would receive additional recognition, and every supporter of the Fund would be invited to celebrate our Anniversary in Jerusalem, and around the world. Please consider making a donation to the Jerusalem Symphony’s Anniversary Fund, and feel free to contact us to learn more about sponsorship opportunities and benefits.




The JSO Studio


Stemming from the Jerusalem Symphony’s rich history of being the orchestra of the Israeli Broadcasting Association, the “JSO Studio” would become a virtual space for concerts, workshops, presentations, educational performances, lectures, and interviews. In partnership with international radio and TV channels, online music streaming platforms, orchestras, universities, as well as youth organizations, this project would deliver our interactive outreach programs directly from the Jerusalem Theatre. The virtual programs would be followed with regular visits by the Jerusalem Symphony’s musicians and tours of the full orchestra. As part of this project, we would also organize trips to Jerusalem for the Jerusalem Music Ambassadors and supporters.




Concert Series & Festivals


From Classical concerts to Series X, and from “All Beethoven Experience” to an annual inter-faith “Hallelu-ya” Festival – the Jerusalem Symphony brings you world-class musical experiences and outstanding soloists. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, we would love to hear from you. We have various benefits packages to suit your budget, whether you would like to support the entire series, a festival, or a single concert. Please feel free to contact us to discuss.




“The Sound of Jerusalem” Exhibition


We are currently working on creating an innovative exhibition about the orchestra, our city, and our people. Featured through the interactive lens of music and lighting design, the story of the Jewish musicians starts in the 1920s Germany, and follows them to Jerusalem, where they founded an orchestra and became key players on and off the stage by performing music, fighting for Israel’s independence, shaping the cultural and political landscape of the new state, and influencing every aspect of life in the region. To sponsor this exciting project, please consider making an online contribution, or get in touch with us at maxim@jso.co.il.




The Documentary Film


To tell and celebrate the story of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and its people, we have partnered with an Israeli filmmaker Duki Dror, and are currently working on a concept for a new documentary about the Jerusalem Symphony. Mr. Dror is an award-winning producer of such documentaries as “Inside the Mossad” (Netflix), “Shadow in Baghdad”, “Mendelsohn’s Incessant Visions”, among others.
Please join us in creation of this documentary by making a donation online.




International MA in Conducting


One of Maestro Sloane’s signature projects is the creation of two Master’s programs in Partnership with the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Universität der Künste Berlin: International MA in Orchestral Conducting and International MA in Orchestral Playing. With your help, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra would launch both programs during the 2021/22 concert season.

Arts Management Fellowship


At the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, we recognize the need for not only educating orchestral players and conductors, but also for investing our resources in raising the future generations of arts managers. Based on experiential learning, our Arts Management Fellowship program would select young aspiring arts managers from all over the world, who would then work side by side with Maestro Sloane and the Jerusalem Symphony’s senior staff on major projects. The vital importance of arts management training cannot be understated, and your contribution would have a long-lasting effect not only on the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra – but also on the future of the entire orchestral industry.
