My main occupation at the moment is with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, and I also perform regularly in numerous classical music chamber ensembles and solo concerts. I also enjoy performing with the “Trio Petit Fleur”, a Jerusalem-based group with double bass and accordion which plays Klezmer, Italian, French, jazz and Israeli songs.  The lighter repertoire and the opportunity to improvise is a nice change from the classical art music I have played for most of my life, and even helps me to understand classical music better.
