As one of Israel's oldest and most influential cultural institutions, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) was founded in 1936 by Bronislaw Huberman, and its inaugural concert that year was conducted by Arturo Toscanini. Then, as now, it is the living fulfillment of the Polish Huberman's dream "to unite the desire of the country for an orchestra with the desire of Jewish musicians for a country."

IPO began, in fact, as an orchestra of soloists, brilliant German and Eastern European exiles from Nazi Germany who emigrated to Palestine and what would become the state of Israel. Today, with concert series in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa as well as across the world, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is an eloquent voice for peace as well as Israel's powerful, most exquisite cultural ambassador. Its beloved music director for life, Zubin Mehta, leads the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in this highly anticipated Arsht Center season finale.
