Numerous well-known artists have performed with the orchestra and there have been collaborations with several internationally acclaimed choirs.

The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from early baroque to contemporary music and great importance is attached to fostering music among the young, with its series For the Entire Family enthusiastically acclaimed by both youth audiences and professional music critics alike. The orchestra tours extensively in Europe, the United States, Canada, South America and the Far East and has participated in prestigious festivals, including Salzburg, Istanbul, Helsinki, Athens, Pompeii, Sofia and Mitte Europa, and Hong Kong. There have been recordings for Chandos, Musicmasters, Koch and Teldec. The Israel Chamber Orchestra is sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports and the Tel Aviv Jaffa Municipality.
