In 2006, Anna joined the world famous Violinst Maxim Vengerov and established the project "Musicians of Tomorrow". The project gives the highest levels of musical education to young gifted but disadvantaged children. The project has been brought to fruition by Anna and has become a programme of excellence recognized all over Israel and abroad. "Musicians of Tomorrow" now teaches 16 talented children between age 6 and 17, mostly from tough socio-economic backgrounds who travel from towns and villages all over the North oh Israel to Anna's home for their tuition and nurturing.
In the eight years since its founding, the children have participated in Festivals in Eilat, Akko, Bulgaria, Kazkhstan, Montreal and Budapest. They have also represented their country on Israel's Independence Day in Vienna, in the Lichtenstein Palace to a VIP crowd of over 1,000 people.
“For me, this project is a message from my grandfather, a klezmer from the Ukraine my father, a great violinist from St. Petersburg and my beloved Professor Yankilewitz from Moscow. “Musicians of Tomorrow” is an opportunity for me to give back to this country with love…….. for music, for children and for the future.”
