Itzhak Perlman to Perform at Palace Theater in April

Itzhak Perlman will perform in a special concert event at Waterbury's Palace Theater this April in a program presented by the Congregation of Kol Ami of Cheshire and sponsored by the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven and Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.

The performance Sunday, April 18 at 4 pm will serve as a fundraising event for the synagogue's Hebrew school and to nurture and incorporate Jewish values and traditions into the everyday lives of its community’s families through educational opportunities, innovative worships and enlivening communal experiences.

An Israeli-American violin virtuoso, conductor and master-instructor, Perlman enjoys a superstar status rarely afforded to a classical musician. Beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent, he is treasured by audiences throughout the world who respond not only to his remarkable artistry, but also to the irrepressible joy of making music that he communicates. A four-time Emmy Award and 15-time Grammy Award winner, Perlman recently performed at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, premiering a piece written for the occasion by composer John Williams, with whom he collaborated on the original score to Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film "Schindler’s List."

During his Palace Theater performance, Perlman will be accompanied on piano by critically acclaimed Rohan De Silva, who performed with Perlman on the "Live from Lincoln Center" broadcast in January 2000. De Silva is a faculty member at the Perlman Music Program on Long Island, The Juilliard School and the Ishikawa Music Academy in Japan.

Tickets for Itzhak Perlman are $125, $75, $65, and $55, and can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at http://www.palacetheaterct.org/, or in person at the Palace Theater Box Office, 100 East Main St., Waterbury.
