The Kiryat Tivon Youth orchestra was founded over 28 years ago. Since 1991, this ensemble has been working under the direction of Menahem Grudzinsky. All the orchestra members continue their musical instruction at the Kiryat Tivon Music Conservatory, under the management of Mr. Hezi Peled. In addition to orchestra activities, they study individually and participate in chamber music ensembles. The Kiryat Tivon Youth Orchestra is one of the leading youth performance groups in Israel, performing often both in its home country and abroad. The Orchestra has received numerous awards and distinctions, and has recently won gold and silver medals at the Kfar Saba Youth Band Competition, in Israel. In addition, this orchestra won: Vienna Festival (Áustria, 2002, 2nd prize); Valência Festival (Spain, 2005, participated); Schladming Festival (Áustria, 2009, 1st prize); Aberdeen Festival (Scotland, 2011, participated); Kerkrade Festival (Holland, 2013, Gold Medal); Schladming Festival (2017, 2nd prize). Its wide range of expression and creative choice of repertoire has always been one of the orchestra’s trademarks. Also noteworthy is the total involvement of each and every musician during the group’s performances.
