The Israel Museum’s jubilee festivities are in joyous full flow, with one event following closely on the heels on another. After all, it’s not every day you get to mark your first half century.
Next up is a star-studded musical lineup with five big gun shows lined up for July 27 to August 4, to take place at the Jerusalem institution’s Art Garden. The summer roster includes a rare show by seminal Israeli rock band Mashina, which is also marking a landmark anniversary after 30 years in the business. Other mouth-watering entertainment slots include an intriguing confluence between internationally acclaimed singer Achinoam Nini (aka Noa), veteran pop singer Rita, and stellar contra tenor David Deor’s pas de deux with leading klezmer artists from around the world.
