The Haifa Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1950 and in recent years has become the focal point of musical life in Haifa and the north of Israel. The orchestra, which is the most significant musical institute in the north of Israel, has recently expanded its activities throughout the country. World-acclaimed Maestro Noam Sheriff, one of Israel’s most versatile musicians, is the music director of the Haifa Symphony Orchestra.
In Israel, over 5,000 subscribers of all ages attend six subscription programs each season: The Classical Series, The Vocal Series, Haifa Proms, Friday Morning Classics, The Children’s Series, and The Chamber Music Series. The orchestra also offers annual opera productions for the benefit of Israel’s northern audience.
The orchestra has a policy of encouraging and promoting original Israeli music and of giving an opportunity for Israeli soloists and conductors to perform. The orchestra received the Prime Minister’s Award for being the leading performer of original Israeli compositions in Israel.
“Not having heard this far northern orchestra for quite some time, one was in for a veritable surprise in the well-rehearsed, firmly consolidated rendition, rich and full sound, and remarkable transparence under Noam Sheriff’s baton. As demanding a work as Berlioz’s Symphonie is, the Ball movement sounded dance-like flexible, the March to the Scaffold plastically described Dr. Guillotine’s ingenious, life-shortening invention, and the Witches’ Sabbath was just as frightening as one could possibly wish.”
