Virginia Symphony Orchestra
JoAnn Falletta, conductor

Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. He has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, National Medal of the Arts, the Kennedy Center Honors, and 15 Grammy Awards as well as the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He has performed for major film scores including Schindler’s List, Fantasia 2000, and Memoirs of a Geisha; in this eagerly anticipated Festival performance with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, conducted by JoAnn Falletta, Perlman’s program will include moving and beautiful music for film. “An unforgettable night embodying true Hollywood romanticism...Mr. Perlman played with vulnerability and love, sweeping concertgoers away to faraway places” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).

Sponsored by the families of Steven SANDLER and Annie and Art SANDLER honoring the legacy of their parents, Reba and Sam SANDLER
