Known as the World’s Greatest Violinist, he’s the winner of 16 Grammy Awards and his violin is heard throughout the John Williams Score in the Academy Award Winning film, “Schindler’s List;” and now Itzhak Perlman is headed to the Sun City once again.
Perlman recently talked about his upcoming visit to El Paso with Felipa Solis, Executive Director of El Paso Pro-Musica.
“I am delighted to return to El Paso. I am looking forward to seeing Zuill, who is an old friend. We had a great time performing together a long time ago. I always enjoy performing for the El Paso audience!”
Perlman is referencing the 2010 performance of the Beethoven Triple Concerto, with Grammy Award Winning Cellist Zuill Bailey, alongside his daughter and pianist Navah Perlman, with the Israel Philharmonic.
That evening, Perlman held the baton and served as the Conductor.
On this trip to El Paso Perlman, along with pianist Rohan De Silva, will perform works by Beethoven, honoring his 250th Birthday, Grieg, Debussy and some exciting Surprises from the stage.
Perlman is on the road and will be traveling to El Paso from Arizona, where he’s set to perform at the Mesa Arts Center and in Tucson at Centennial Hall. His performance in El Paso is set for the Plaza Theater on March 3 at 7:30 p.m.
A limited number of tickets are still available online and the Plaza Theater Box Office. The Concert is being presented by El Paso Pro-Musica.
