Renowned Israeli-American violinist Itzhak Perlman will join Music Director Manfred Honeck, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, and all artists have graciously donated their services for this performance.

“It’s an honor and a privilege for me to participate in this concert with the Pittsburgh Symphony honoring the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre. I hope this event will help us continue to heal and come together,” said Itzhak Perlman.

“As advocates of peace, tolerance and understanding through the universal power of music, our entire Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra family extends its deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones on account of this horrific tragedy,” added Manfred Honeck. “Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with our community as we resolve to go forward doing what we know best, performing music with the hope that we can bring people together as we collectively grieve and heal.”
