Backstage Tours behaind the sences

See what the musicians do before going on stage, understand the meaning of the conductor’s movements, learn how musicians “warm up,” and hear about a cellist’s experience when receiving applause from 2,500 people.


The Backstage Tour of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, under the personal guidance of two orchestra members, gives you the opportunity to get to know the musicians personally and take a peek backstage prior to a concert.

After the concert ends, you will be able to converse briefly with the musicians again.

Forthcoming dates of the tour will be announced shortly.

To register for a free tour, call – *3766

Number of participants limited to 25 – please register early.




Visit the IPO’s Archives 

Over eighty years of documents and photographs are stored in the IPO’s archives: invitations to concerts, musical scores (for each instrument), photographs of exciting moments in Israel and around the world. Countless stars of the music world, along with presidents, princes and luminaries, can be found here.

Come and discover the story of orchestra through a special visit to the IPO’s archives.

The dates of the visits will be announced shortly.




Open Rehearsals 

Watch the orchestra at work: the final rehearsals for some of our concerts are open occasionally to the public. You can watch the orchestra play, follow the conductor’s instructions and comments, and participate in a completely different concert experience.
