Israelis departing for foreign pastures, and tourist on their way back home, will be able to enjoy some quality musical entertainment at Ben Gurion Airport en route to their flight gate over the next month or two, courtesy of a bunch of talented vocalists from the Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in Ramat Hasharon.
The innovative in-transit agenda kicked off last Thursday and, between now and May 28, every few days, and at varying times of the day, pairs of student singers will perform at various spots around the airport.
The musical fare will cover a wide range of styles and genres.
This Thursday, for example, Smadar Ronen and Moran Meisles will perform a selection of classic Israeli songs between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and next Sunday, between 4 p.m.
and 6 p.m., Michal Guy and Idan David will sing a program of Hebrew and non-Hebrew numbers. Atalia Lavi and the returning Meisles will provide outgoing travelers with a quality musical outro, of Israeli classics and jazz numbers, in the closing slot on May 28 between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
