A GROWING COMMUNITY

what is ORCHARD of POMEGRANATES?
Orchard of Pomegranates is a multi-cultural, international community of active listeners and creative improvisers.
A safe place for vulnerability, where non-musicians and Grammy-award-winners alike share a space to explore free-range music making and support each other’s creative practices. Together, we explore the edges of our imaginations and the depths of our humanity.
“My heart was cracked open” said a participant at the latest Orchard of Pomegranates: Vocal Intensive. Other participants have called the Orchard’s Intensives “life changing” and “transformative.” In these intensives, we dive deep for three days of voice-centred, body-mind, heart-soul “workout.” One of the participants named it “a gentle boot-camp for creatives.” Ayelet facilitates a rich environment, bringing world class artists to present a diverse tapestry of approaches, exploring voice-work, improvisation, writing and movement.
“Gottlieb created “Orchard of Pomegranates” as a platform for teaching, discussion, listening sessions and a safe-space for musical adventure and connectedness. Online, it has gained in reach and significance during these times of musical isolation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Participant/faculty such as Jay Clayton, Theo Bleckmann, Fay Victor, Sofìa Rei, Clarice Assad and Katie Bull foster a relaxed but intensive atmosphere of holistic learning and performance.”
“A voice and song that were born in Jerusalem and have performed around the globe, carrying a feeling of home in her backpack, within the music.”
