About the project
The Classical Winter in Jerusalem Festival was a music festival held over several years during the months of December and January. The festival was a merger of Music by the Red Sea, an Eilat-based festival, and Jerusalem’s Liturgica concerts, a Christmas-time series with choirs from abroad. The series included symphonic, chamber and sacred music performed by members of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, an international youth orchestra and numerous guest performers under the direction of David Shallon, then music director of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, Lorin Maazel and others. Concerts were organized by the Israel Festival and were held at the Henry Crown Symphony Hall, the YMCA Concert Hall, the Rebecca Crown Theater and other locations.
