Meet Itamar


Acoustic guitar

Classical Guitar




“Itamar’s music holds a depth and sensitivity that touches listeners deeply.
It blends the delicateness of Middle Eastern music, the freedom found in jazz, and the passion of flamenco, creating a unique sound all his own”

Recipient of the 2014 ACUM Prize for Special Achievement in Jazz and the prestigious 2014 Landau Prize, Itamar Erez is an internationally renowned composer and guitarist who has shared the stage with such musicians as Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Jean-Louis Matinier, Zohar Fresco, and others.

As a musician and composer, I have released 4 CDs, and the 5th is coming out soon!

My most recent CD, “Mi Alegria,” was released in June 2019 with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and has received raving reviews, both nationally and internationally, including a nomination for the 2020 Instrumental Artist of the Year Award from the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

I perform internationally and give workshops and masterclasses, teaching his unique approach to music and piano/guitar playing.

In recent years (pre-pandemic), I have performed in Canada, the USA, Israel, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Austria, Cyprus, Israel, India, Tunisia, Hungary, Colombia & Surinam. I also made my Carnegie Hall (NY) debut Apr 2018 performing with the Omar Faruk Tekbilek Ensemble with Ara Dinjkian & Brian Keane as special guests.

Among the venues and festivals that I played throughout my career were: Barbican Hall (London UK), Sydney Opera (Sydney, Australia), the Jerusalem Jazz Festival (Israel), Oman Opera House, The Megaron (Athens, Greece), Schauspiel Leipzig (Germany), Amsterdam Jewish Music Festival (Holland), the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall (NY), and others.

Excited to meet my students here!
