One of the youngest ever recipients of the Israeli Prime Minister’s Prize for Composition (2007), Kopelman creates multi-genre work that combine her diverse musical passions. At times, her work draws on Biblical texts, modern Israeli poetry, and feminist themes. She was awarded a Kronos Quartet commission as part of their Under30 program. She has also received commissions from the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition, the Jerusalem Chamber Orchestra, and the Orchestre Pour la Paix (Paris). Since 2014, she has been composer in residence for the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.
