Founded on 2018 by Sarah Shemesh Shabtai and Olga Moitlis, Yakinton Ensemble is a unique orchestra that includes 15 young harpists from several cities around Israel, at the ages of 9-16.
The goal of the founders was to train young students to professionalise in playing together, as well as expanding the repertoire of the harp. All the repertoire is composed and edited for the ensemble originally.
The ensemble rehearse regularly at the Israeli Harp Shop “Ayelet’s String” in Tel-Aviv.
The name of the Ensembele was given by one of the main pieces composed by Iliya Magalnyk – Variations on The Theme of Rivka Julli “Pizmon Le Yakinton”.
