"The origin of Baroque ensembles in Israel" – this is how the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra has been described, as the first orchestra in Israel to focus on the music of the Baroque – using period instruments, performance methods and playing techniques that were common in the 17th and 18th centuries
The orchestra was founded in 1989 by the harpsichordist and conductor Prof. David Shemer, its musical director until today.
The orchestra holds concert series throughout the country: starting from its home in Jerusalem, the Culture Center in Tel Aviv, Arts Hall in Nes Ziona and also in the churches and music halls of the city of Haifa.
