Orchestrating a Musical Legacy: Introducing the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music

The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music is the fruit of a unique collaboration between Tel Aviv University and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Inaugurated in 2004 on the foundation of the former Rubin Academy of Music, the School of Music is currently the foremost academic institution in Israel for training music professionals in performance, composition and music research.
