The Perlman Music Program is active on the East End again this summer, with several events happening during the next week. This weekend, Itzhak Perlman, Merry Peckham, Paul Katz, Roger Tapping, Don Weilerstein, and Vivian Hornik Weilerstein will join forces with young musicians to play chamber music masterpieces.
The concert, “Classical Collaborations,” will be performed twice, first on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Southampton Cultural Center and again on Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons in East Hampton. A reception with the artists will follow each concert. Tickets for the Southampton concert are $50, free for those under 18. Tickets for the East Hampton concert range from $50 to $200.
From Monday to Friday, June 13, Mr. Perlman and others will teach master classes at the Kristy and James H. Clark Arts Center on Shelter Island. The classes will take place at 7 each evening.
On June 14 and 15, again at the arts center, the Perlman Music Program will host the final concert of its chamber music workshop. On both days, the concert will be given twice, once at 3:30 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.
Both the master classes and the concerts are free and open to the public. Because seating is limited, the center recommends calling 212-877-5045 in advance to confirm seats.
