From May 20 to June 6, and in Jerusalem for the first time, iconic violinist Yitzhak Perlman and his team of master teachers will offer 42 gifted young musicians the chance to hone their art via the Perlman Music Program.
The instructors include violinists Miriam Fried (US), Hagai Shaham
(Israel), cellist Paul Katz (US), choir-master Patrick Romano (US) and
Tayseer Elias (Israel) for Arabic music.
The students, half from Israel and half from Perlman Programs around the
world, will receive not only individual instruction, but master classes
that will develop their chamber ensemble skills. They will also
participate daily in choir singing under Romano, and from Elias they
will get an introduction to the beauties of classical Arab music.
Perlman’s wife, Toby, runs the programs, which she founded in 1993 to
train outstanding string-players in a nurturing environment.
There are concerts, rehearsals and master classes open to the public for
a paltry NIS 20 per ticket. The course is co-sponsored by the Jerusalem
Music Center. The full program can be found at www.permanmusicprogram.org,
or you can call the JMC at (02) 624-1041.
