Two Israeli Violinists Give Command Performance for Belgian Queen

Download PDF for this date

Two young Israeli violinists–Yehoshua Epstein and Yair Klez, who have been studying in Beligum for several years, gave a command performance last night for Queen Elisabeth in her Stuyvenberg Castle. Both artists won first prize three years ago at the Brussels Conservatory and were later admitted for a three-year stay at the Queen Elisabeth Musical Institute where they continued their studies. Queen Elisabeth warmly congratulated the two Israelis.

King Baudouin meanwhile, received at the palace a delegation of the Belgian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem led by Prof. Jean Baugniet, president of the group, who presented the King with the Golden Book of the Queen Elisabeth Institute of Archaeology at the university.
