Ohad Talmor


Performer's Website

Ohad Talmor was born in 1970, in Lyon, France of Israeli parents. He grew up in Geneva Switzerland, in a house with classical music on at all times. At age five, he started studying piano at the Geneva conservatory.

Upon moving to Florida in 1987 as an exchange student , Ohad took up the saxophone after falling in love with the little jazz he had heard before leaving Switzerland. Following his return to Europe, he moved along a musical path which led him first to study musicology at the University in parallel to gigging around town. Eventually, performing took over studying as Ohad immersed himself into the European jazz scene. Parallel to his activities as a performer on the saxophones/clarinet, Ohad took on a growing passion for composing and arranging which eventually led him in 1995 to the Manhattan School of Music on a full scholarship. He received his Diploma in Composition in 1997 (now deeply buried in his basement) and since then is continuing to live in Brooklyn, NY, performing, composing, arranging - and sometimes acting - in a wealth of different projects.
