Founded by Polyphony Education in 2012, the Galilee Chamber Orchestra broke ground as the first professional orchestra composed of both Arab and Jewish musicians in Israel. Initially the ensemble included only three Arab musicians; now, ten years later, as a result of Polyphony’s educational efforts, the 35-member orchestra boasts equal numbers of both Jewish and Arab musicians. The Orchestra enjoys an international reputation and performs in major festivals and venues in Israel and abroad.
