Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded 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 his irrepressible joy for making music. Having performed with every major orchestra and at venerable concert halls around the globe, Itzhak Perlman was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom in November 2015 by President Obama for his meritorious contributions to cultural endeavors of the United States and for being a powerful advocate for people with disabilities. In 2013, he was the recipient of a Kennedy Center Honor by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in celebration of his distinguished achievements and contributions to the cultural and educational life of the United States. Perlman's recordings have garnered 16 GRAMMY Awards, and in 2008, he was honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in the recording arts. Perlman commemorates his 70th birthday during the 2015-16 season with three album releases and worldwide concert tours. His return to the beautiful intimacy of The Grand 1894 Opera House promises to provide a superb concert experience. Mr. Perlman's performance is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and Texas Commission on the Arts. It is also sponsored in part by the William J. and Merri S.
