About Us

The association was founded in 1998 in order to promote musical activity in the classical singing field specifically, and in the classical music performance and education fields in general. At first (1999) the annual international festival in memory of Felicja Blumental was founded at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. As of 2001, the association operates events at Felicja Blumental Music Center’s auditorium, per the request by the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality. As of 2009, the association manages an umbrella body in cooperation with the music department of the Ministry of Culture and Sports.

The association is located at the building of the music center and library in memory of Felicja Blumental that was opened in 1996 and is administered by the libraries department of the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality.

The Felicja Blumental Music Center focuses on discovery, on granting opportunities and support for Israeli musicians who perform in Israel in various music styles, in order to help them realize their musical abilities so they’ll be acknowledged as great artists tomorrow as well as abroad.

The association is like a home for the musicians community and music-loving audience in Tel Aviv and beyond it.
