One of the most iconic artists of our time. His remarkable talent and charm has endeared him to audiences the world over, and given him superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. We are thrilled to announce Itzhak Perlman as our first ever Artistic Partner, a role created especially for him.
This Artistic Partnership allows both Houston Symphony musicians and concertgoers to cultivate a deeper relationship with Perlman and his incredible music making. Throughout the three-year engagement, Perlman will serve in a variety of roles, reflecting his many talents: as concerto performer, recitalist, conductor, educator, and storyteller.
In the 2020–21 season, audiences can experience his legendary artistry on Opening Night, in recital, and in a special program featuring Beethoven’s Ninth.
