The museum orchestra is a pioneering cultural enterprise, heralding a new category within the realm of culture. As a musical entity affiliated with the museum, it offers curated musical experiences for the art collections and exhibitions within the museum. Beyond mere performances, the museum orchestra transcends boundaries between classical music and contemporary visual art, fostering a dynamic dialogue between both worlds. Its repertoire infuses traditional forms with a modern spirit, breathing new life into age-old traditions.

The museum orchestra expands the discourse between different realms, uniting diverse audiences and creates a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

The orchestra performs throughout the year in parallel to the launch of the exhibitions. The concerts are accompanied by guided tours of the exhibitions alongside explanations of the musical choices.

The concerts take place in the various spaces of the museum and in chamber ensembles in the galleries. The orchestra also brings its uniqueness to diverse destinations outside the museum complex through mobile exhibitions of the museum accompanied by the musical treasures of the orchestra. In addition, the project offers a personal and refreshing musical interpretation of a private treasure.

Alongside a wide international repertoire, from the Baroque period to contemporary music, the orchestra, in the spirit of the museum, makes sure to give a platform and encourage Israeli creations in every project.

The orchestra consists of 15 string players, most of whom are graduates of the Buchman Mehta School of Music, and includes outstanding musicians (winners of scholarships and awards) from all over the country and the world.

Along with the support of Petah Tikva Municipality and the America Israel Cultural Foundation, the project arouses interest among the cultural community in Israel.
