A Mosaic of Peacemakers

In honour of Christian Friends of Israel

Please join us for an entertaining virtual program of music and stories in celebration of grassroots peacemakers in Israel.

Honouree

This year, we are honouring Christian friends of Israel. Especially in times like these, with another war with Gaza last May, and rising antisemitism/anti-zionism around the world, it’s gratifying to know the Jewish people have the support of many Christian communities. Thank you!

Project

The Clore Center for The Performing Arts – Rehearsal Studio Project

About the Centre

The Clore Centre For the Performing Arts is the Upper Galillee Regional Council’s music conservatory, dance and theatre school, located in Kibbutz Kefar Blum. The Centre, established in 1996, serves people from all over the area. Almost 1000 students (youth and adults) study at the centre with professional teachers in an advanced-level learning environment. The Centre’s ensembles, orchestras, and dance ensembles include Arab, Jewish and Druze students.

The centre is also running a series of subscriptions to dance performances, chamber music concerts and theatre all year.

The Project

The centre is being expanded, with new dance and theatre studios. In the original plan, the new wing didn’t include a special musical room. However, recently we determined that we need to convert one of the dance studios into an orchestra studio. The new studio will operate 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, and all residents of the area will benefit from it, especially the centre’s students.

The intention is to change the walls, and improve the studio’s acoustics, which means additional costs to the original plan. Upgrades include:

– New acoustic walls
– Acoustic improvements
– Approach Improvements
– New acoustic ceiling
– Different air condition system (Quieter than standard air condition system)
– Better lighting system for music rehearsals (to be able to read the notes easily)
