Motivated by his passion for chamber music, Eliah created together with his wife Caroline von Bismarck the International Chamber Music Festival "Musikfest Schloss Wonfurt" in 2003. The festival was dedicated to the traditional German Hausmusik and was celebrated in the idyllic Lower Franconian castle of Wonfurt. Eliah became its artistic manager and shared responsibilities in the fields of production, public relations and concert presentation. Resourcing from his vast network of contacts, including some of Europe’s leading soloists, Eliah produced thematic concerts on an international level under the concept of instantaneous, live chamber music experience. The authenticity, freshness and spontaneity of this concept proved extremely successful and attracted audiences from the whole country and internationally. In the course of the happy events of family extension and due to the remoteness from New Zealand Eliah and Caroline paused the festival after 10 continuous years with the firm intention to revive it in the years to come.
