Ophra Yerushalmi is a graduate of the Jerusalem Academy of Music, later a scholarship student of Claudio Arrau and composer Stefan Wolpe. She has performed throughout four continents, and premiered works of Israeli composers Paul Ben-Haim, Mordecai Seter and Joseph Tal. Her previous documentary film was dedicated to the presence of Fryderyk Chopin in contemporary culture, Chopin’s Afterlife. New York audiences have heard her at the 92nd Street "Y", Merkin Hall, The Miller Theatre, Symphony Space, Lincoln Center, and The Music Festival of the Hamptons directed by Lukas Foss, who also participated in Chopin’s Afterlife. Her essay, “Benediction to Liszt in his Solitude” was published by Pendragon Press in Liszt: A Chorus of Voices. In 2013, Ms. Yerushalmi has received “An Artist-in-Residence” fellowship for three months by the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, New Mexico, to develop her new film-project Preludes.
