AFIPO brings people together to celebrate Israel’s rich cultural tapestry and pursuit of excellence by connecting the country’s world-class orchestra and its outreach programs to audiences around the world. We build bridges across cultures, countries, and continents by bringing diverse musicians and audience members together in celebration of the international language of music. We invite you to join us in that work at our New York Gala.

Your support helps to strengthen KeyNote, the music education program of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, which impacts nearly 25,000 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.
