Rosh Ha’ayin has joined the list of cities around the country that now host annual jazz events.

The second annual Sounds of Partnership two-day event, which will take place on May 28-29, is part of a week-long program of free jazz activities overseen by the Jewish Agency’s Rosh Ha’ayin-New Orleans Partnership, and the Municipality of Rosh Ha’ayin, and includes shows, rehearsals and master classes.

The organizers have brought over some top-class artists from the States, including stellar drummer Jason Marsalis, saxophonist Khari Allen Lee, trumpeter Linton Smith and pianist Michael Pellera, who are all based in the Stateside partner city. All four teach at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA).

Marsalis will present a master class on May 28, and he and his compatriots will also perform in two Sounds of Partnership shows, which will also feature internationally renowned Israeli jazz saxophonist Daniel Zamir, veteran pop pianist- vocalist Shlomo Gronich and ensembles from local schools, including the gospel choir from Menachem Begin High School and the Batterista percussion troupe.
