TAMIR’S WISH “TO RECEIVE A VIOLA AND PLAY WITH THE ISRAEL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA”
Tamir suffered from a brain tumor. Make-A-Wish staff member said: “There are times that magic happens right in front of our eyes which is so powerful, that even we have to take a few moments to realize that it’s not a dream.” That’s exactly what happened, as we sat and watched Tamir practicing with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Tamir’s wish was granted at the National Theater, the home of the Philharmonic in Tel Aviv, when he also received the viola he had dreamt of. After receiving the viola, Tamir was invited by the orchestra’s conductor, to practice with them during the dress rehearsal for “The Magic Flute”. The conductor, as well as the members of the orchestra, where amazed with Tamir’s talent and musical abilities and invited him to perform with them at their upcoming concert. The impact on Tamir was hugely positive and playing with the orchestra at a real concert in front of hundreds of people was a dream come true, making him feel like a professional performer.
