We are sponsors and donors of the American Friends of Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. It is impossible to imagine Israel without its Philharmonic Orchestra.– Shimon Peres: Israeli President, Prime Minister & Nobel Prize LaureateAmerican Friends of the Israel Philharmonic OrchestraFor nearly 80 years there has been a strong bond between North America and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. In fact, the IPO would not have come into existence without this vital relationship. In 1936, legendary scientist Albert Einstein hosted one of the first major fundraisers at the Waldorf Astoria, securing the financial support needed to officially form the Orchestra.American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (AFIPO) was created in 1980 to formalize and broaden this relationship and tradition of giving. From the beginning, the fate of the IPO has rested largely in the hands of its North American supporters. In addition to generating an endowment and increasing the reach of the Orchestra through financial support of national and international tours, AFIPO was also instrumental in developing KeyNote, the educational arm of the IPO. KeyNote programs bring the joy of classical music to over 29,000 children in Israel each year, while promoting tolerance and mutual respect.
