If you thought that the Israel Philharmonic played only classical music, you would be wrong because this concert was more like a Boston Pops production. McFerrin fooled around with the orchestra and with the audience, and the more serious pieces were the overture from Carmen and the suite from West Side Story.
But the highlight that captured the audience's applause the most was the William Tell Overture by Rossini. After what seemed like an ordinary introduction, instead of playing their instruments, the members of the orchestra launched into an a cappella version, mimicking their instruments with only their voices.
