She has also appeared on his numerous PBS specials, most recently on Celebration of the 70s.

He built one of the first-ever 6-string violins and set his own course as a musical pioneer, designing and performing on an instrument that did not previously exist. His groundbreaking work defies musical boundaries and landed him a place among the 100 distinguished alumni named by his alma mater, The Juilliard School. He is currently touring internationally as a soloist with orchestras, with his solo one-man concerts, with his rock ensemble, Eclectica, and with his trio, Three Part Invention. He has performed at major concert venues from Sao Paulo to Vienna, from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl. Silverman appears on many of Jim Brickman's CDs and DVDs, and orchestrates Brickman's music for full symphony performances.
