The AFIPO New York Gala honors the career of Daniel Libeskind, the internationally renowned figure in architecture and urban design. The evening features a private performance by brass musicians of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, cocktail reception, and dinner at The Pierre Hotel (Dietary Laws Observed).

We believe that music moves the world. Founded 81 years ago during the holocaust to save the lives of Europe’s Jewish musicians, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra proudly serves as Israel’s preeminent cultural emissary, traveling the globe to share its profound message of peace, mutual respect, and excellence through music.

Your integral support helps to strengthen the transformative music education offerings of the orchestra, which impact over 21,000 young people yearly from every race and religion in Israel. Thanks to your important patronage, we can continue to bring Israel’s resilient spirit to audiences throughout the world.
