Shimon Lankry, Mayor of Acre

Musicians, Music lovers, honorable guests and dear Acre residents,

Acre – The city of Mediterranean Culture welcomes the many guests and the contestants of the 19th International Harp Contest in Israel, which, for the first time ever, takes place in the “Knights’ Halls” in Old Acre.
The city of Acre which has a rich and glorified history is now in the midst of rejuvenating and prospering in every aspect.
We take pride in the city being a place in which Jews, Muslims and Christians live together in harmony.
Acre was recognized by UNESCO as a city of heritage which was the center of kings, emperors, knights and seamen’s desire.
The 19th International Harp contest in Israel is one of the many cultural events and Festivals, taking place in Acre each and every year. This is our pride and joy.
I wish the guests and the contestants a wonderful Musical experience.
With best wishes,

Shimon Lankry, Mayor of Acre
