Hagar Kadima

A winner of the 2003 Prime Minister’s Award for Composers, and the first Israeli woman to achieve a Ph.D. degree in music composition, Dr. Hagar Kadima is an active contemporary composer, being regularly commissioned and performed by vocal and instrumental ensembles in Israel and worldwide.

During the last decade, Kadima's creative work has expanded to visual arts (aquarelle & ink painting). Today she is the only woman artist in Israel professionally active as both a contemporary concert composer and a painter. Within the last 4 years, her paintings have been exhibited in 13 group exhibitions, and 5 solo exhibitions.

Dr. Kadima has been supporting for years the growth of a new generation of composers, both in her 24-years music professorship at the Levinsky College of Education, and in her life-long individual work with young composers. In addition, part of her artistic work has always been dedicated to the co-existence of Arab and Jewish people in Israel – both in her own compositions and in Arab-Jewish women-musicians' collaborations.

In 2000 Dr. Kadima founded the Israel Women Composers' Forum and served as its first chairperson (2000-2004).
Since then, she has dedicated much time and endeavor to continuous support of women composers and their integration in the Israeli music scene.
