IMG_0905On Tuesday, April 12, the musicians of our Youth Philharmonic and Youth Sinfonia Orchestras took part in a master class with four accomplished violin students from Mateh Asher and Akko, Israel, along with noted Israeli composer and conductor Michael Wolpe, professor at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. The visiting violin students sat in with our youth orchestras and played together in a unique collaboration.

The visit was made possible by Partnership2GETHER/Western Galilee and the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines, and was coordinated with assistance from members of the West Des Moines Sister Cities Commission.
