The Kiryat Ono Youth Concert Band

Kiryat Ono


Kiryat Ono, a small town of about 30,000 inhabitants, maintains a conservatory that would be a credit to any large city. These young people study wind instruments, strings, percussion, singing and piano with highly qualified teachers, and participate in additional activities including a string ensemble, three wind bands, a big band, brass band, a woodwind ensemble and an adult amateur band in which musicians between the ages of 18 and 75 join forces in playing together.
The Kiryat Ono Youth Concert Band provides an important educational framework for the youngsters of the area. Its wide and varied repertoire includes classical and light classical music, traditional band music and Israeli concert and folklore music.
Since its early days the Band has performed in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Peru, South Africa, Switzerland and the U.S.A.
During the course of these regular overseas tours, the Band has won several international prizes and meritorious awards.
