    Join us for an afternoon of music by two incredibly accomplished young musicians playing an eclectic program on piano and violin. Beethoven’s Sonata #6, Samuel Coleridge Taylor’s 4 African Dances, Julian Fueyo Gonzalez’s Zafiro, Sergei Prokofiev’s Sonata #1, Fritz Kreisler’s Caprice Viennois, and George Gershwin’s (Arr. Heifetz) Summertime and It Ain’t Necessarily So from Porgy and Bess. Jewish-American violinist Ilana Zaks has performed with numerous orchestras including the Boston Civic, Rhode Island Philharmonic, and Cape Cod Symphony. A member of the Perlman Music Program, Ilana has studied with Donald Weilerstein for the past 12 years. As an entrepreneur, Ilana’s passion resides in creating theatrical multidisciplinary collaboration, breaking the stereotypes of modern musical experiences through inclusion of contemporary works by women, popular recital works, and works she commissions. An advocate for contemporary music, Ilana won an NEC EM grant for her commissioning project of four violin and percussion duo works featuring multidisciplinary collaborations. The result of this project was her debut album and first ever visual album "The Persistence of Memory," which was released on Amazon Prime US and UK in July 2020. Since 2013, she has been a member of the Perlman Music Program in which she has been studying with legendary Itzhak Perlman. Ilana will be joined by the talented and accomplished Eric Zaks on cello. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to experience wonderful music and support two gifted musicians.
