Over 100 people gathered in Whitley Auditorium on Oct. 1, 2015, for an informative and lively presentation by Elon University faculty members Victoria Fischer Faw and Andrew Bonner from the Department of Music. 

With a combination of pictures, video, and their own live performances, they offered the audience an understanding of the significance of Perlman’s masterful career. 

In addition, they shared a bit of Perlman’s human, humorous side – such as his appearance on an episode of the Muppets.  A virtuoso violinist, a master teacher, a humanitarian, Perlman has a passion for life, and for the work he has chosen. 

The Elon community hears Perlman on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 3:30 p.m. for Fall Convocation in Alumni Gym.
