The Rubin Academy of Music and Dance, of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, will strut its jazzy finery in Tel Aviv on November 18 (2 p.m.) at the JAM’d fundraiser event. The show will take place at Beit Hayotzer – AKUM in the Port of Tel Aviv and will feature a glittering collection of some of the country’s top jazz artists – all teachers at the academy – alongside some of the school’s gifted graduates and current students.
Everyone will get an opportunity to shine on the Beit Hayotzer stage, as the academy alumni and students join forces with the likes of internationally renowned saxophonist, and Red Sea Jazz Festival artistic director, saxophonist Eli Degibri, saxophonist Yuval Cohen, seasoned saxophonist Albert Beger, pianist Katya Tobol, bassist Yurai Oron and drummers Yaki Levy and Roni Holan. Proceeds of the show will help to fund outstanding students of the academy’s Department of Jazz Performance.
The established stars will perform in a variety of formats, including a sextet and duets, with all the musicians playing en masse for the closing number of the concert.
Doors open 2 p.m., and the show starts 2:30 p.m.For tickets: (054) 733-4480 and [email protected]
