A few years ago, thirty five students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance's (JAMD) Community & Youth Project played a flowing series of events in the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Starting with a concert in the hospital lobby, and taking a classical approach to the Beatles hit song "Here Comes the Sun" , the students continued and played in various locations throughout the Medical Center as doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.
Shaare Zedek Medical Center is Israel's fastest growing hospital, responsible for medical care for more than 500,000 people each year. A national and globally recognised leader in both clinical care and academic research, Shaare Zedek is home to more than 30 inpatient departments, 70 outpatient units and dozens of research institutes. The hospital proudly serves as a center of advanced medicine for all the peoples of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas with constant attention to patient-centered care while embracing the latest modes of medical technology.
The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance is unique in the Israel's higher education system. With 800 students in the Performing Arts of Music, Composition, Dance and Choreography, JAMD's Community & Youth Project operates over 20 different projects throughout Israel allowing more than 300 children and young people from disadvantaged areas to study serious music & dance.
