On March 1st, 2015, Noa and Gil Dor have organized an event to celebrate their 25 years of career together. Their first common show was in February 1990 at the Cinematheque in Tel Aviv.
To celebrate this date, most of the musicians, producers, teachers and others who have participated in their career were present. Throughout the evening, the musicians went on stage, one after another, to perform with noa and gil. The atmosphere was very relaxed, personal and joyful. Noa was very emotional!
