Uri’s piece "Northern Wind" for harp solo is among six finalists at the The Composition Contest for the USA International Harp Competition (USAIHC). It was chosen from 90 works submitted by composers from 33 countries. It will be performed during the Composition Forum at the 11th USA International Harp Competition in Bloomington, Indiana, on July 8, 2019 at 7pm in Auer Hall.  

      The new 2018-9 season of the world famous Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) under the great maestro Zubin Mehta was opened with Uri`s symphonic poem The Prophet, featuring big symphonic orchestra, solo piano and mixed choir. The piece was performed with a great success in six concerts around the country. It is worth mentioning, that the piece was composed when composer was 14 years old and was then revisited some 25 years later, adding a choir part and elaborating the score.
