Dear friends and music lovers, we need your help! Our Foundation relies on subsidies, sponsorships and donations to organize our concerts. The musicians are going through a difficult time at this moment. Unfortunately it’s the bitter truth. Please support us with your donation. Even a €10 donation can make a big difference. On behalf of the Board, I thank you very much, Micha Cohen, Chairman.



Please join cellist Maya Fridman and the Jewish Amsterdam Chamber Ensemble (JACE) for our first “Summer night of Jewish Music” on Sunday August 28, 3:00pm. Tickets are available here.
