Review by Eytan:

The concert took place in the Rishon Le Zion auditorium. It was full house. 
The first part was with Yoni Rechter on the piano and with musicians from the Rishon Le Zion symphony orchestra 
with a celesta, violin, cello, contra bass, harp, saxophone, clarinet, flute, percussion, guitar and a vibraphone. 

The list of songs on the first part:

layla layla
neula he dalti
besade patuach
she's leaving home
shir eres+do do
ten li yad
me'emek ve'givaa
bird on a wire

mad about the boy

The second part was the Rishon Le Zion symphony orchestra (a marvelous orchestra)
with Rafi Kadishzon conducting.

The song list from the second part:
shir hanoded
hinach yafa
moon of Alabama
cancion de cuna para dormir a un negrito
demaot shel mal'achim
hayoo laylot

Ziununay Haderech was an encore.

Then the manor of the town came on stage and presented Esther with the city medal made by the famous 
Yaacov Agam and invited Esther to the next year festival.

After this Esther sang ten li yad with the whole orchestra.

Esther was in a good voice and mood and gave a very nice concer

Many thanx to Eytan!
