The Israel Philharmonic, along with their “Music Director for Life”, Zubin Mehta, returns to Ann Arbor for the first time in a decade. Founded in 1936 by Bronislaw Huberman, the IPO’s inaugural concert was conducted by Arturo Toscanini. For more than 75 years, the orchestra has hosted the world’s greatest conductors and soloists while developing Israeli artists and young talents from both Israel and abroad. Born in Bombay, Zubin Mehta has had a longstanding affiliation with the orchestra dating back more than 40 years. He has also served as music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the New York Philharmonic, and counts among his many accolades a star on Hollywood Boulevard.
