A citizen of Israel, Great Britain and the U.S. Guy Mendilow grew up touring internationally, starting his professional stage career at age ten with the American Boychoir. Today, Mendilow directs the Guy Mendilow Ensemble, "An international tour de force” (Bethlehem Morning Call) from Israel, Palestine, Argentina and the USA, combining world-class musicianship with cinematic storytelling in shows that “explode with artistry, refinement, and excitement” (Hebrew Union College), whisking audiences to distant times and picturesque places and inspiring resonance with lesser known cultures and histories. The Guy Mendilow Ensemble was awarded the National Endowment for the Arts’ Art Works grant for public engagement with diverse and excellent art and the strengthening of communities through the arts. GME develops artist residencies for leading performing arts organizations including Celebrity Series of Boston and transports audiences at performing arts centers in the U.S. and Canada including the Clayton Center for the Performing Arts (Maryville TN) , Krannert Center for the Performing Arts (Urbana IL), the Shalin Liu Performance Center (Rockport, MA) and the Port Theatre (Nanaimo, British Columbia).
Mendilow is a visiting teaching artist in schools and universities across the U.S. including Harvard University, Cornell University, Brandeis University, Oberlin College, University of Oregon and the University of Washington, and directs the Dalcroze School of Boston, offering Dalcroze Education for children and adults in the Boston area.
