Students of the, run by legendary violin player Itzhak Perlman based on Shelter Island, presented a wonderful evening of chamber and choral music aton Friday night.
About 250 tickets were sold in advance and additional tickets were sold at the door. The various chamber music groups comprised 37 very talented teenagers and about 50 members of the chorus, which was supplemented by faculty members of the Perlman Institute as well as members of the community. The students who were not performing at various times provided a vocal appreciation of the other students at the conclusion of their performances – hooting and whistling were not in short supply.
Special thanks were lauded on Icim and Mark Miller by Toby Perlman for their continuing support of the student program.
"They have continued the marvelous tradition year after year and are grateful for their help, which has let us reach out to the broader community and share our students' music with you," she said. "The Millers are tireless advocates of classical music education and true benefactors."
