CONDUCTOR - Nachman Yariv
Nachman Yariv was born in Argentina and started taking piano lessons at the age of six.
In 1957 his family moved to Israel and he completed his musical education at the Rubin
Academy of Music, Tel Aviv. He did his compulsory military service in the Israel army’s band, as a tuba player and assistant conductor.
After his army service, Nachman used his skills in the theater, conducting several musicals.
Over the last 20 years, he has become more and more involved in musical education, directing the
Youth Band, conducting the National Kibbutz Youth Band and as consultant of the Rothschild Foundation’s music project for Israeli youth.
When asked why he devotes so much time and energy to the Kfar Saba Community Band, he says,
“It’s such a pleasant challenge to work with these adults.”
Nachman Yariv has written many works and made arrangements for wind bands, some of which were published in the USA, Norway and Holland.
