When Fred Kaufman came to visit the country as a young trumpet player with his wife he did not believe that 25 years later he would find himself living in the country and fulfilling some of his main aspirations. At the beginning of his career, he began teaching groups of students to play wind instruments and from there the road to the role of the conductor was short. In order to bring the population closer and bring the jazz music he writes and composes, he formed a moving orchestra around the city of Jerusalem, his seat, on top of the jazz mobile he set up, inspired by a similar truck from his hometown New York, and reveals his works to the general public. In addition to his private initiatives, Fred teaches at the Academy of Music at the Hebrew University of Givat Ram, organizes unique recitals, and writes music for ballet performances.
