Friends of the Ensemble

Friends of the Israel Contemporary Players, Mikshav Association

the Israel Contemporary Players brings to the Israeli audience the best contemporary music in the world, from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day.

The purpose of the ensemble is to promote and distribute contemporary classical music to audiences in Israel and around the world, to provide a platform for Israeli filmmakers and composers, and to present what is happening in the international scene by the best conductors and soloists from all over the world.


The Israel Contemporary Players has revolutionised the performance of contemporary music in the country. Its founder and artistic director, composer Dan Yuhas, makes sure to incorporate works written by Israeli composers, along with the best international works, within the concert programs, and alongside works that have already become "classics" in contemporary 20th-century repertoire of music.

The Ensemble maintains a balanced budget, a stable and healthy organisational culture and full transparency in its management and economic activities.
This diverse activity requires many resources that are only partially covered by self-incomes and support by various institutions.

We invite you to take part in our work, to contribute and influence the development of the Israel Contemporary Players, to allow us to continue to bring our wealth of activities to the general public and to hold unique concerts in the years to come that shine on composers and artists in Israel and around the world in new music.
