Longest-serving player leaves the Israel Philharmonicmain
The cellist Yoram Halperin has retired after 46 years.
He was hired by Zubin Mehta in 1971 even though he had never played in an adult orchestra before. ‘The risk’s on me,’ said Zubin.
His father was concertmaster of the Israel Opera. His son is a viola player in the Israel Camerata.
We wish Yoram a happy retirement.
