    Award-winning violinist and 2016–17 Helwig Distinguished Artist Pinchas Zukerman joins Maestro Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as they return to Indiana for a breathtaking night of music.

    A recipient of two Grammy Awards and 21 nominations, Zukerman has remained a phenomenon in the world of music for over four decades. His musical genius, prodigious technique, and unwavering artistic standards are a marvel to audiences and critics. Born in Tel Aviv in 1948, Zukerman has been awarded the Medal of Arts and the Isaac Stern Award for Artistic Excellence and was appointed as the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative’s first instrumentalist mentor in the music discipline.

    Honeck, who has served as music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra since 2008, last joined us in Indiana in April 2015 to help celebrate the Lively Arts’ 25th anniversary season. More than half a million people hear PSO in concert every year, and millions more listen through radio broadcasts and recordings.

    The concert will include Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations” and James MacMillan’s “Britannia.” Zukerman will join the PSO performing Max Bruch’s Concerto No. 1 in G Minor for Violin and Orchestra, Opus 26.
