He is also a prizewinner of New England Conservatory’s Concerto Competition, Haifa Symphony Orchestra’s Zvi Rotenberg Competition, the Canetti International Violin Competition and New England Conservatory’s Violin Competition, and has performed at an array of venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Boston’s Jordan Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, Ruse’s Philharmonic Hall and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

As an avid chamber musician, Kobi has collaborated with Itamar Golan, Miriam Fried, Frans Helmerson, Hsin-Yun Huang, Kim Kashkashian, Alan Kay, Marcy Rosen, Roger Tapping and Peter Wiley. He has performed at numerous festivals, such as Ravinia, Music@Menlo, Yellow Barn, the Perlman Music Program and the Marlboro Music Festival, and worked with notable artists such as Pamela Frank, Ivry Gitlis, Vadim Gluzman, Leonidas Kavakos, Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman. Kobi's chamber performances are regularly broadcast on Israel’s classical music radio Kol HaMusika, and on WQXR and WMFT in the US.
