Dear guests , Shalom!

 We are extremely  glad to welcome you to our International music showcases of jazz & world music and Rock & Indie .

Musical and cultural life in general is very hectic in Israel and I hope you get some of its  flavor .

While for years Israeli excellence in classical  music  gained its reputation worldwide, we are happy to share with you the vary high level of musicians of there different genres.

My deepest gratitude to the artistic directors, to their advisory musical committees , to the “yellow Submarine” team and to our own team of the Music Section at the M.F.A.


I want to thank you all for coming from afar and I am confident you will have

both fruitful and good time in Israel
