The 2nd International Jerusalem Jazz Festival graces the walls of the Israel Museum.
After an extremely successful launch of their first edition last year, jazz will fill the galleries of the Israel Museum yet again this December. Under the artistic direction of Israeli trumpet sensation Avishai Cohen, the 2nd International Jerusalem Jazz Festival hits the Holy City. The three-day festival features five original productions, inspiring artistic collaboration, pop-up performances throughout the galleries, master classes, jams at the Yellow Submarine and a special performance by none other than Avishai Cohen himself.
“This year, we chose artists who can take the performance experience to great heights — creative artists who compose music without compromises, with a personal statement and a lot of spirit, and artists who are shaping the future of the contemporary jazz scene, who know where jazz came from and are paving its way forward. The artistic program is made up of various styles that make up the world of jazz, as well as the musical worlds that dialogue with it" – Avishai Cohen
