Founded by Eduard Schmieder in 1991, the iPalpiti (ee-PAHL-pit-ee is Italian for heartbeat) Orchestra became a flagship ensemble of iPalpiti Artists International in 1999. iPalpiti’s humanitarian mission of cultural exchange succeeded in creating a truly universal network among over 200 artists from all over the world, promoting international and cultural understanding through music. During the summer of each year, iPalpiti brings twenty-five to thirty of these exceptionally gifted professional musicians to its home-base in Los Angeles, California for the prestigious iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates where members perform in solo, ensemble, and orchestral public concerts.
iPalpiti artists, often referred to as “Musical Peace Corps,” hold claim to over 100 international competition awards. iPalpiti is internationally recognized for their breathtaking performances in Japan, Israel, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy, to name a few. “Classical music is the spiritual factor which brings people together and unites them irrespective of religion and culture, appealing to sublime senses,” states Eduard Schmieder.
