The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, in partnership with the City of Sandy Springs and the Sandy Springs Society, is proud to present a recital by Israeli-American music artist Itzhak Perlman on February 16 at 7pm at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center’s Byers Theatre. As a part of the event, AJFF will present Perlman with the Icon Award for Contributions to the Cinematic Arts, which honors exemplary artists who have upheld a tradition of excellence in film, informed directly or indirectly by a Jewish subject or sensibility.
“Since his debut at Carnegie Hall in 1963, Perlman’s career continues to have a rich impact on the arts and cultural landscape. His genius has elevated the music of motion pictures and in turn the movie-going experience,” says Kenny Blank, Executive Director of AJFF. “We are thrilled to present the Icon Award to such a preeminent artist and important contributor to the cinematic world.”
The program for the evening will include a variety of solo violin works performed by Perlman, in partnership with acclaimed pianist Rohan De Silva. Tickets are on sale now, range from $65-$100 and are available for purchase exclusively through the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center box office, at citysprings.com, or by calling 770-206-2022.
