Chelouche Gallery hosts the Toscanini Quartet for a series of three concerts.
The “Classic at Salon Chelouche” series presents an innovative concept: “boutique concert”, which offers in addition to a musical performance a visit to exhibitions presented at the new and spectacular Chelouche Gallery space, one of the most impressive historical buildings of the region, located in Old Jaffa.
On Saturday, 01.04.2023, at 12:00, the classical concert series “Salon Chelouche” will open under the artistic direction of Assaf Maoz and the Toscanini Quartet. The quartet, all of which are members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, was founded in order to continue the string quartet tradition that was an integral part of the orchestra’s artistic activity.
The season’s opening concert is an opportunity to visit the solo exhibition of Yadid Rubin, which is currently on display at Chelouche Gallery.
