N&R Covers Itzhak Perlman Appearance

Posted: March 18, 2014

Violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman discussed his career, performed a short recital and answered questions from the audience in a March 17 Bryan Series program at War Memorial Auditorium.

The Greensboro News & Record published an article about the event and posted a photo gallery on its website. More photos are available on the Guilford College Facebook page.

“Today my greatest achievement is to be able to say that I am still in love with what I do,” the 68-year-old musician told the audience, according to the newspaper. “Every time that I do something musical, for me it is a new experience.”

Born in Israel in 1945, Itzhak appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. He has performed with every major orchestra in the world and received 15 Grammy Awards, four Emmys and the Kennedy Center Honors.

Rohan De Silva, a faculty member at The Julliard School, accompanied Itzhak during his performance. Justin Catanoso, director of the journalism program at Wake Forest University, served as the evening’s moderator.

The final Bryan Series event of the season will feature 60 Minutes journalists Lesley Stahl and Steve Kroft on April 8.

Established through the generosity of Board of Trustees Chairman Joseph M. Bryan Jr. ’60, Guilford’s Bryan Series of lectures brings world leaders in the arts, humanities and public affairs to Greensboro as an educational opportunity for students and the regional community.
