Participant Profile

Yana Tifbenkel


Tiefbenkel is an executive director of Art November, an international festival that brings special exhibitions and performances to a range of locations across Moscow. For the 2012-13 season, Tiefbenkel has organized more than thirty-five concerts of classical and contemporary music with over seventy participating artists from Russia, Europe and the US. She also managed the Bach-Marathon, in which international soloists accompanied by the Moscow Conservatory Chamber Orchestra performed all of Bach’s concertos in one day. In addition, she has worked with contemporary groups such as the Klezmatics. During her residency, she hoped to learn new approaches to management practices and to share the work of lesser-known Russian composers and musicians with US audiences.
