The Billy Rose Art Garden of the Israel Museum will rock and groove between July 11 and 14, when it hosts a glittering roster of big-name acts from right across the musical spectrum.
First up is Yehudit Ravitz hosts Shalom Hanoch. Ravitz is one of the most successful and famous Israeli rock musicians, with a career spanning over 30 years. She will perform a rich repertoire of her most popular songs.
This will be followed by a joint performance between singer-songwriters Eviatar Banai and Aviv Geffen who will be presenting new material and old classics.
Pianist, conductor and musical director Gil Shohat presents 7 Pianos, an evening featuring grand pianos, one stage and seven virtuoso performers.
This original production of classical and popular music, arranged for 70 fingers, features the talents of Marina Maximilian Blumin, Rami Kleinstein, Shlomo Gronich, Matti Caspi, Leonid Ptashka, Omri Mor, Michael Zartsekel, Victor Stanislavsky and Tal Samnon. IPO soprano Daniella Lugasi will also take part.
The museum’s magical musical tour closes with veteran Israeli rock guitarist Berry Sakharof launching his latest album Likutim. He will be joined onstage by musicians such as Gidi Raz, Oren Lutenberg, Benno Hendler, Nir Mantzur and Ronen Shapira among others.
