The Virtuosi of Tel Aviv ensemble presents “From Classics to Jazz” at 9 p.m. Saturday, March 20 at the Rozin Culture Center in Tel Aviv’s Ramat Aviv neighborhood. The concert, part of the Music of the World series, features pieces by Bach, Dvorak, Paganini, Joplin, Gershwin, Piazzola and others.

The ensemble was founded in 1996 by violinist, composer and arranger Alexander Povolotsky, who together with his two violinist children, Marianna (like her father, a member of the Israel Philharmonic) and Eugene (who combines music with a career as an independent producer), forms the core of the ensemble.
