Travel fears prompts ASO to sub one violin legend for another

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra was set to welcome one of the greatest living violinists on Wednesday, March 11. The orchestra still plans to do just that, but the bow will be in different hands.

“Due to travel precautions, Itzhak Perlman has decided to cancel his March 11, 2020 appearance with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra,” says the ASO in a statement.

Instead, Pinchas Zukerman will join former Music Director Yoel Levi and the ensemble for a performance of Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1.

The performance will be livestreamed online at aso.org/Livestream, too, and Atlantans are invited to a simulcast presentation at the Woodruff Arts Center’s Sifly Piazza.
