The students, who are selected through rigorous tests, participate in master classes that are taught by the best teachers in the world, playing ensembles and chamber groups and performing in front of an audience. In addition, winter and summer seminars are held for outstanding Israeli students.

The fundraising event was held at the Harmony Club in New York, with the participation of the center's graduates and students, including the successful Israeli violinist Asi Matathias, the Israeli-Arab violinist Eesa Khoury and others. The event was moderated by the musical director of the center Itzhak Rashkovsky.
