White Night Music Marathon Shines in Tel Aviv
It was 5:30 and the dawn began descending over Tel Aviv City when the last notes faded away and listeners began leaving the hall. A celebration of jazz and sound, modern and avant-garde music which began eleven hours earlier and had enraptured a capacity audience, came to a close. This year's hugely successful festival by far surpassed its predecessor and we are already looking forward to the next year, the third Tel Aviv White Night Festival.
