The Yellow Submarine a musical multidisciplinary center was founded in 1991 by the Jerusalem Foundation on funds received from Floeresheimer Foundation. Throughout the years it has established itself as one of the major leading tones in music in Israel. As of 2000 it is an independent non-profit organization, and as of this year 2011, The Yellow Submarine is celebrating its 20th birthday.
The Yellow Submarine constitutes a fundamental culture and musical center in Jerusalem. By definition, the Submarine is the home in Jerusalem for musicians and musical proponents as one. Through the years the place has established itself as a central rite of passage for musicians from all sides of the scale – whether young musicians from Jerusalem, musical ensembles from all across the nation and to the more popular adored artists who still see the Submarine as their home.
During the daytime the place has asserted itself as a school for music and sound, a rehearsal chamber and a recording studio. As the evening sets in the live shows begin; young ensembles, Jazz, Group Theater, comedic shows and full on concerts performed by the well known beloved artists.
The Yellow Submarine sees itself as a cultural emissary that constitutes the artistic environment for the diverse Jerusalem crowd. On the new show menu one will find tastes from numerous cultures:
On Tuesdays the submarine's hatch invites all Jazz lovers, inviting the Jerusalem crowd to drown his sorrows with a cold beer and praiseworthy Jazz. Professional ensembles, mostly high profile will Jive up the place on a weekly basis helping to heat up the chilly Jerusalem winter with stimulating tones of saxophone and piano – all of which - free of charge.
Apart the numerous well known admired artists that can be seen on a regular basis, The Submarine presents designated nights for young bands from Jerusalem and from all across the nation – for most the Submarine stage will be their primal exposure to the common crowd.
