As the fourth International Jerusalem Jazz Festival approaches, the excitement is building up in anticipation for another wonderful gathering of musicians from all over the world and Israel, in the magical setting of the Israel Museum art galleries.
On our journey to Azerbaijan and Italy, to the Czech Republic and France, to Brazil and the United States and back to Israel, we concocted our own private Jazz celebration, exciting combinations of traditional and innovative, structured and improvised, universal and personal, playful and reflective, East and West, international and local.
This year too, the festival hosts unique original shows, a singular lineup of guest artists, surprising pop-up solos, masterclasses, late night jam sessions, students’ platform, and more – offering an opportunity for one-off encounters with unique, original and inspiring artists who share their inner and cultural world with us through their music.
A thousand thanks to the partners of the Israel Festival in organizing the event – the Yellow Submarine and the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. To all of our supporters, the Culture Administration, Jerusalem Municipality, the Jerusalem Foundation, Beracha Foundation, the Israel Foreign Ministry, and to our business partners. Our deepest appreciation to the outstanding professional team, and to all the participating musicians. And to you, the audience – thank you for your faith and for your passion!
See you at the festival,
CEO, Israel Festival
