The Cleveland Orchestra “Gala 2013”

Itzhak Perlman, one of the world’s pre-eminent violinists and music educators, was the featured performer at a gala concert to benefit the Cleveland Orchestra education programs.

Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. He was joined in concert by Russian conductor Vassily Sinaisky and The Cleveland Orchestra.

More than 2,000 music lovers attended the sold-out Severance Hall event, helping to raise about $900,000 for music education in Northeast Ohio. A Russian-themed dinner for 400 guests, planned by Executive Chef Doug Katz, followed the performance. The event was co-chaired by community philanthropist Norma Lerner and KeyBank Chairman Beth Mooney.

The Cleveland Orchestra serves more than 70,000 people of all ages each year with an array of education concerts, workshops and instructional resources, working in partnership with hundreds of schools, colleges and universities, libraries and cultural and community-based organizations. Since 1918, the orchestra has introduced more than four million Cleveland-area school children to symphonic music.
