Maestro Zubin Mehta, longtime music director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, will conduct this year’s annual “Philharmonic in the Park” concert on July 13 at Park Hayarkon in a free performance under the stars.

The Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality is dedicating the concert to Mehta, who is departing from his role of music director next season.


Mehta will bring the works of Rossini, Puccini, Gounod, and Gershwin to the park. Among the soloists are soprano Mary Elizabeth Williams, mezzo soprano Olesya Petrova, tenor Gregory Kunde, and bass Oleg Tsibulko, a group of international singers who have performed with Mehta over the course of his career.

Mehta has served as musical director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra since 1977, conducting thousands of concerts and touring on five continents. He was named Honorary Citizen of Tel Aviv-Jaffa in 1986, a designation awarded to those who have made special contributions to the city.

The upcoming concert will feature works from Tosca, The Barber of Seville, Faust and more, and will begin at 9 p.m. with doors opening at 7:30 p.m.
