IPO statement: Five months have passed since the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra came down from the stage. In this period, the instructions for us were changed not once and not twice, until finally all the cultural institutions in Israel were completely closed. The fitness clubs, hotels and restaurants have also opened, but the cultural halls choose the state to leave closed. Also the many efforts we took, to hold our concerts under the most stringent instructions, in order to keep your health and the health of the musicians did not help, so it’s time for us to raise a scream voice. At 19:30 pm, we will demonstrate in front of the Prime Minister’s Daycare in Jerusalem, and fight for our right to play for you, our dedicated audience. We all hope that soon we will be able to return to the stage and see you all. We can’t leave this stage empty!
