The Young Philharmonic Orchestra Jerusalem Weimar was established in 2011 with a mission, to play music that was forbidden to be played, to revive forgotten masterpieces by Jewish composers, as well as other compositions that, being created under totalitarian regimes in persecution facing death, represent, each one in its own way, a larger issue: While culture and cultural values may not be enough to hold humanity together, it is always the ever-lasting task of the younger generation to rediscover those values and give them a renewed meaning.

On the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Germany and Israel, this notion is significantly reinforced. The Young Philharmonic Orchestra Jerusalem Weimar, led by Maestro Michael Sanderling, projects the young musicians‘ responsibility to carry on a memory, their yearning for a hopeful future and their passion for friendship. For most of the young German and Israeli musicians, each gathering has been a strong, first experience, a deeply moving discovery about themselves, about something beyond a musical and artistic call. It is a partnership between people in two academies in two cities that share human values never lost.
