The Third Annual Jerusalem Jazz Festival Is On Its Way

 We are proud to see the third annual Jerusalem Jazz Festival make its way to Jerusalem again, transforming this event in a cultural tradition in the city. The festival, an initiative born at the Jerusalem Foundation, became a unique cooperative effort and a flagship project of the city’s most iconic institutions – the Israel Festival, the Israel Museum, and the Yellow Submarine Music Center. Year after year, the festival has garnered accolades from the press and from attendees.   

Leading jazz artists from Israel and around the world, voices and sounds that design today’s modern music scene, are making their way to Jerusalem for the festival and will offer festival goers a remarkable cultural and artistic experience.

The event is an inspiring integration of music and multi-disciplinary art, original productions tailor made for the festival that will take place at various galleries and spaces in the Israel Museum, master classes, and jams that will play well into the night. Among the participants this year is BAD PLUS (their last performance with their current ensemble), Keren Ann and the project “Non Standard,” Roman Diaz, Daniel Freedman, SEXMOB, Papanosh, Noa Drezner, Moderato Cantabile, and more. You can review the program here.
