TFO GALA FEATURING ITZHAK PERLMAN
Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman is a rare classical superstar, beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent.
Among his numerous honors, Mr. Perlman is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a Kennedy Center Honoree, as well as a 15-time Grammy and four-time Emmy winner. He has performed multiple times at the White House, including the 2009 inauguration of President Obama.
In Mr. Perlman’s gala concert with The Florida Orchestra, he will join Music Director Michael Francis on stage to perform some of his favorite music from the silver screen, including As Time Goes By from Casablanca, the Love Theme from Cinema Paradiso, and the Theme from Schindler’s List.
This extraordinary evening is also an important fundraiser to support TFO’s excellence in the concert hall and incredible reach into the Tampa Bay community. Our expanded hospital, education, youth and veterans concerts would not be possible without your help.
Tickets for the gala go on sale to the public Nov. 7, 2016.
