The Perlman Music Program’s mus-icians will be back on the Island this weekend, chasing those winter blues away with beautiful music.

They will perform a recital of works by Brahms, Takemitsu, Telemann and others.

He attended the Perlman Music Program’s Summer Music School and Chamber Music Workshop on the Island and is currently studying for his master’s degree at Juilliard.
