If you are a young classical music player, particularly if the violin is your instrument of choice, Keshet Eilon is probably the place to be around this time of the year. The Keshet Eilon Music Center was established in 1990 with the expressed intent of nurturing budding talent. That was at a time when the mass immigration of Soviet Jewry was picking up pace, and the idea was to primarily help newly arrived musically gifted youngsters fit into the local scene and, subsequently, the global arena.The first edition of the program hosted 25 players. Now, almost three decades on, the summer mastercourse caters for some 60 young musicians, aged 16-28, from all over the world. Between July 23 and August 8, the music center will host participants from all points of the compass, including China, the Ukraine, South Korea, Slovenia, Germany, Cuba, New Zealand, Azerbaijan, Taiwan, the USA, France, Japan, the UK and Russia. There is just one exceptional exception to the age bracket, 11-year-old British-born violinist Leia Zhu whose family hails from China.
