Ido grew up in Jerusalem, Israel. Playing the piano from a young age, he later studied in the Israel Arts and Science Academy, a boarding school for highly gifted people from around Israel, and went on to serve in the army as an "Outstanding Musician." This year Ido will be completing his M.A. in orchestral conducting in the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. As a part of his studies he was an exchange student in the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt in Weimar, Germany and conducted orchestras in Israel and Germany. Ido is the founder and musical director of the Jerusalem Street Orchestra. The orchestra is comprised of sixteen classically trained young professional musicians, who bring classical music and the orchestral genre to new audiences. Since its founding in 2013, the orchestra has given numerous open air concerts in public places in Jerusalem, integrating classical music and pop. The orchestra has also played in many festivals in Israel, including The End of the Summer festival at the Jerusalem Theater, In-House of the Jerusalem Season of Culture, Sounds in the Desert and more. Last year the orchestra collaborated with famous Israeli singer Arkadi Duchin in the joint project Yesh bi Ahava. This year, Ido initiated the Jerusalem Street Orchestra's new Musical Arranger's Hub - an internship program for young promising musical arrangers. The Jerusalem Street Orchestra is supported by the Ministry of Culture, the Jerusalem Municipality, the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, and the JCU Giving Circle.
