Roit Feldenkreis started her career in music the “classical” way. As a young girl she trained in Israel and the USA to become a soprano singer with everything that it entails: practice, discipline and hard work in the face of challenge. This seemingly predictable beginning has converted into a road of exploration for Roit in which she has been constantly investigating and pushing the boundaries of the classical traditions as well as cultural and geographical boundaries as an international orchestra conductor.
Prizewinner at the London Classical Soloists Conducting Competition (2014) and a leading musician in the International music arena, Roit has served for 8 years as the Founder and Music Director of the Israeli Moshavot Chamber Orchestra, a semi-professional orchestra in Northern Israel (2011-2019), located in the prestigious Elma Arts Hall. In 2019 Roit relocated to Barcelona with her family, where she is currently Principal Guest Conductor with the Catalan Chamber Orchestra of Barcelona and the Sant Cugat Symphony Orchestra in Barcelona. As a guest conductor she collaborates with numerous orchestras in Spain, Israel and worldwide such as the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, Haifa Symphony Orchestra, Beer Sheva Sinfonietta, Israel NK Orchestra, London Soloists, Zacatecas Philharmonic Orchestra, Paraguay National Orchestra, Campana Philharmonic Orchestra of Naples, Montevideo Philharmonic Orchestra and others.
A leading entrepreneur and innovator, Roit is a sought-after lecturer in the fields of music and leadership. As innovative, creative musician, she promotes interdisciplinary artistic collaborations to challenge the norms of classical music and to create a deep audience connection and appreciation. Under Roit’s leadership, the Israeli Moshavot Chamber Orchestra has dedicated itself to performing innovative world-premiere compositions by living composers from Israel and around the world, as well as regularly performing family-oriented concert series to promote classical music to under-privileged youth and annual charity concerts with talented young soloists.
Starting her musical career as a soprano singer, Roit Feldenkreis has performed as a soloist with the Philharmonic Choir of Israel and the Israeli Opera Choir, among others. She puts a focus on the score’s melodic lines, to create a powerful orchestral melody in every piece. Roit has conducted choirs in Israel and around the world, including the Philharmonic Choir in Maestro Daniel Oren’s production of Puccini’s “Madam Butterfly” with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra.
A Tel Aviv University graduate, Roit holds a Master’s degree in Orchestral Conducting with Honors from the University’s Buchman-Mehta School of Music, where she studied with Yoav Talmi and Mandy Rodan. Other conductors with whom she has studied include Noam Sheriff, Zsolt Nagy, Avi Ostrovski, Ze’ev Dorman, Giselle Ben-Dor, Helmut Riling, Manfred Honneck and Julian Raichlin, to name a few.
