The Perlman Music Program 25th Anniversary Gala

Friday, July 26, 2019

Contact (212) 877-5045 or specialevents@perlmanmusicprogram.org

Friends and supporters of The Perlman Music Program (PMP) joined students, alumni, faculty, and founders Toby and Itzhak Perlman on the Program’s beautiful Shelter Island campus to mark a singular moment: PMP’s 25 Anniversary.

What began as a modest two-week program in 1994 is now a richly supportive musical community dedicated to the future leaders of classical music. The Summer Music School, Chamber Music Workshop, and residencies in Florida and Israel offer instruction and mentorship at the highest level. Audiences are treated to more than 300 performances, special events, and outreach sessions each year across the East End of Long Island, New York City, Sarasota, Palm Beach, and even Tel Aviv. A worldwide network of more than 700 alumni are excelling as artists, teachers, and people, guided by PMP’s unique educational philosophy.

At the core of it all, “Toby’s Dream” remains unchanged. Every summer, exceptional young musicians come together on Shelter Island to immerse themselves in their art, guided by Itzhak and Toby Perlman and the program’s stellar faculty. Students become members of an international family, and form friendships that change their lives forever.

After a beachfront reception, a choral and orchestral performance showcased the phenomenal talent of PMP’s students…and a few surprise guests! PMP Founder Toby Perlman gave a warm welcome to all and special recognition to the evening’s honorees: Kristy and James H. Clark, Annette and Ian Cumming, Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, and Sidney and Morgan Stark. These visionary individuals put PMP on the map – figuratively and literally – by transforming the historic campus and building a vital Endowment Fund. Their leadership continues to inspire and bolster the program’s efforts and launch the next chapter of PMP.  

Maestro Patrick Romano conducted stirring choral renditions by Bach and Beethoven. PMP Board Chairman, Randall Blank, welcomed the guests and hailed PMP board members Michael Bunyaner, Rodger DeRose, Jay Dweck, Barbara Gladstone, Vicki Kellogg, Peter Kend, Mark Miller, Laura Sloate, Jim Toth, and Caitlin Tully before introducing the PMP String Orchestra and Maestro Itzhak Perlman. Maestro Perlman reflected on PMP’s milestone with his signature charm and humor, then led a breathtaking rendition of Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”. For the grand finale, alumni violinists Stella Chen, Mariella Haubs, Rachel Lee-Priday, Radu Paponiu, Kenneth Renshaw, and Eric Sliberger  joined the students for a mesmerizing performance of Vivaldi’s “Winter”. Guests jumped to their feet for a standing ovation, as the Maestro retook the stage with his historic violin for a surprise encore of Elgar’s “The Snow”, joined by yet another alumni violinist and faculty member, Sean Lee.

A quarter century of excellence was celebrated at the “Taste of Shelter Island” reception and dinner, featuring delicious offerings from 18 Bay, Amagansett Wine & Spirits, Isola, Marie Eiffel Market, Osprey Bar & Grill at Shelter Island House, The Pridwin, Ram’s Head Inn, Red Maple at the Chequit, SALT Waterfront Bar & Grill, Sunset Beach, Sylvester Manor Educational Farm, The Village Cheese Shop, and Vine Street Café.

A silent auction inspired friendly competition among the guests, thanks to over 60 generous donors including The American Hotel, Gurney’s, Charlotte Lee and Primo Artists, Dabney Lee, North Fork Table & Inn, Pure Soul Boutique, Shoreline Aviation, Soundview Greenport, The Wilpon Family and the Mets Organization, the finest North Fork vineyards, and even a few select vintages from Itzhak Perlman’s personal wine cellar.

The evening paused for reflection from Michelle Ross, a distinguished violinist, composer, and PMP alumna. Michelle remarked, “PMP has been part of my life since I was 12 years old. My relationship with The Perlman Music Program – with my teacher, and with all of the faculty and all of my peers, who have become my colleagues and some of my best friends – is forever evolving. The lessons are always unfolding for me. As you get older, you start to gain perspective on the magic, and the joy, and the love that is instilled in you from childhood. All of a sudden you start to understand that every single detail, every single decision, has been so thoughtfully created for you, for the student. There’s this effortlessness about The Perlman Music Program. We all felt it tonight. It’s like breathing, and it’s all on purpose. It’s this incredible experience of understanding that you’ve been given the greatest blessing of your life to be part of this community.”

And as a final farewell, the famous Perltones took the stage for their inimitable doo-woop stylings and rendition of the Beatles classic “All You Need Is Love” – brought to life by a PMP student flash mob!

The 25th Anniversary Gala raised more than $700,000 thanks to the inspired support of many generous and dedicated donors, plus a surprise anonymous match from one, to help close out the auction. The evening’s guests numbered over 300 and leadership supporters included Elaine and Hirschel Abelson, Arlene and Alan Alda, The Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation, Christine and Randall Blank, Jennifer and Doug Bosch, Ann and Michael Bunyaner, Kristy and James H. Clark, M. Elaine Crocker, Cumming Foundation, Jay Dweck, Marie and John Evans, Sylvie and Robert Fitzpatrick, Barbara Gladstone, Mei Sze and Jeff Greene, Barbara and Henry Gooss, Cornelia and Ralph Heins, Sara and Randall Hogan, Vicki and Chris Kellogg, Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Mrs. Susan Lloyd, Denise and Jim Martin, Biriçim and Mark Miller, Kane and Martin Nussbaum, Pamela and Edward Pantzer, Meryl Rosofsky and Stuart Coleman, Tom Roush, Lawrence and Carol Saper, Allan Schwartzman, Deborah and Michael Sciarrino, The Steinberg Forman Group at Morgan Stanley, Richard A. Smith, Sidney S. Stark, Justin Sullivan, Ashley and Jim Toth, and Pamela Thomas and Sedgwick A. Ward.

On Saturday, March 9, Marsha and Henry Laufer hosted a beautiful evening in celebration of Toby and Itzhak Perlman, and the 25th Anniversary of The Perlman Music Program (PMP). The evening began with cocktails on the waterfront, followed by an elegant seated dinner and rousing chamber music concert featuring PMP students and alumni.

The standout evening was made possible by the leadership support of Marsha and Henry Laufer, Vicki and Chris Kellogg, and our cherished community of supporters.

After a warm and welcoming reception, Marsha introduced Toby Perlman, who thanked the gathered guests and introduced PMP’s talented students and alumni. The performance began with the second movement of Rachmaninoff’s Cello Sonata arranged for viola and piano, performed by violist Jack Kessler and pianist Kwan Yi. The musical fireworks continued with Chopin’s third Ballade performed by Kwan Yi, and a rousing finale from Dvorak’s “American” String Quartet, played by violinists KJ McDonald and Rinat Erlichman, violist Hannah Geisinger, and cellist Derek Louie.

Toby moderated an absorbing discussion between the artists and the guests…with a few choice quotes from Maestro Itzhak Perlman. The audience listened with delight as the young musicians spoke from the heart about PMP’s stellar faculty and mentorship, supportive community, and Toby’s unique perspective on creating a nurturing experience for every child.

On Thursday, February 7, we celebrated the artistry of wine and music at our annual Wine Dinner and Charity Auction. The evening brought together over 120 passionate supporters and guests in the elegant Le Bernardin Privé for a five-course wine dinner designed by Chef Eric Ripert, music by our extraordinary young artists, and an exciting live auction directed by Jamie Ritchie, Senior Vice President and Worldwide Head of Sotheby’s Wine.

The evening raised over $780,000 in support of our students, alumni, and faculty…and Toby and Itzhak Perlman’s dream, now in its 25th incredible year.

The evening kicked off with a stylish reception sponsored by Krug Champagne. Guests enjoyed Krug Grand Cuvée poured from magnums while placing their bids on fun silent auction packages. Highlights of the silent auction included: fashion by Karl Lagerfeld Paris, club seats for the Mets at CitiField, dinners at 2 spring and Lincoln Ristorante, Napa Valley getaways, cult California vintages in large formats, prime Burgundy picks, prestigious Bordeaux, rare digestifs, and much more.

Maestro Itzhak Perlman gave a warm welcome, and encouraged guests to raise their paddles high for PMP! An exquisite dinner was served, with highlights generously arranged by Alessandro Bonino and Tartufi Morra, and Michael Affatato and Leah Sullivan of the Mattituck Village Cheese Shop. Courses were paired with vintages from Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Napa, generously provided by Sotheby’s Wine, Bryant Estate, and Kongsgaard Wine.

Jamie Ritchie took the podium and presided over a thrilling and spirited live auction. Highlights included Krug Champagne, Sine Qua Non, Bryant Estate, an Imperial of 2013 Chateau Margaux and lunch at the chateau, a magnum of 2011 Domaine la Romanée-Conti Romanée Saint-Vivant, 1982 first-growth Bordeaux, dinners at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, The Modern, Tribeca Grill, Saint Julivert Fisherie and La Vara, a weeklong getaway in a private luxury Paris apartment, and Napa experiences hosted by the elegant Meadowood Napa Valley and Cardinale.

Toby Perlman introduced three musical interludes performed throughout the evening by our captivating young artists: excerpts from Popper’s Concert Polonaise for Cello and Piano, Dvorak’s iconic “American” String Quartet, and – to top off the evening –Mendelssohn’s monumental Octet for Strings. At the close of the auction, Toby Perlman moderated an impromptu Q&A between the artists and the delighted guests.

Our Charity Auction would not be possible without the inspiring leadership of our dedicated Co-Chair group: Stephanie and Gavin Albert, Leslie and James Attwood, Bettina S. and Donald L. Bryant, Ann and Michael Bunyaner, Vanessa and Henry Cornell, Ellen and Rodger DeRose, Bari and Neil Goldmacher, Deborah and John Gross, Cornelia and Ralph Heins, Hayley Järvi and Roger Schagrin, Dalia and Levi Kelman, Katherine and Peter Kend, Vera and Robert Loeffler, Eilene and Ronald J.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to: Jamie Ritchie for his expertise and presence at the podium and Sotheby’s Wine for their incredibly generous support, Joel Rubins and The Wine Vault @ Western for generously storing and shipping the evening’s valuable vintages, Per Holmberg for skillfully preparing the auction catalog, and Chef Eric Ripert and the entire team at Le Bernardin Privé for providing a spectacular venue and experience.

On Friday, July 27, The Perlman Music Program (PMP) celebrated its annual “Taste of Shelter Island” summer benefit. Toby and Itzhak Perlman hosted an evening of beautiful music and delicious food on PMP’s waterfront Shelter Island campus. In addition to a fabulous concert, guests enjoyed a tasting dinner from the island’s finest chefs and restaurants.

The evening started with a cocktail reception by the beach, featuring a raw bar from SALT Waterfront Bar + Grill, a delectable spread courtesy of the Pridwin, Village Cheese Shop and Vine Street Café, and libations from Shelter Island Craft Brewery, Sunset Beach, and Amagansett Wine & Spirits.

Guests made their way to the concert tent for a performance featuring the program’s talented students. PMP Founder, Toby Perlman, and Board Chairman, Randall Blank, welcomed the guests and recognized PMP board members in attendance Michael Bunyaner, Jay Dweck, Barbara Gladstone, Vicki Kellogg, Mark Miller, Jim Toth, and Caitlin Tully. Led by Maestro Patrick Romano, the PMP Chorus sang a stirring movement from Schubert’s Mass. Maestro Itzhak Perlman introduced the PMP String Orchestra, and led passionate performances of Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky.

Guests enjoyed dinner in a beautiful tent full of local flavors. Local restaurants 18 Bay, Caci Shelter Island, Isola, Ram’s Head Inn, and Red Maple at The Chequit shared highlights from their seasonal menus. PMP Chef James Moran unveiled his specialties, crafted with fresh local produce from Sylvester Manor Educational Farm. French pastries by Marie Eiffel and an ice cream cart of PMP favorites provided the perfect finishing note.

A silent auction inspired friendly competition among the guests, thanks to generous donations from The American Hotel, Café Boulud Palm Beach, Shoreline Aviation, North Fork vineyards, Shelter Island highlights, and even a few select vintages from Itzhak Perlman’s personal wine cellar.

The evening paused for a moving speech by Areta Zhulla, a PMP graduate and faculty member, and newly appointed first violinist of the Juilliard String Quartet. “Mr. P taught me how to make music, and Mrs. P taught me how to live”, said Areta.

As a final farewell, guests were treated to the sweet sounds of “The Perltones”, PMP’s resident doo-wop ensemble, with a surprise encore of the Beatles classic “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”…brought to life by a PMP student flash mob!

The event raised more than $500,000, all in support of PMP’s mission to educate the next generation of great classical musicians. The evening’s guests numbered over 250 and leadership supporters included Arlene and Alan Alda, The Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation, Christine and Randall Blank, Michael Bunyaner, Marie and John Evans, Samantha Gilbert and Edward Dolman, Barbara Gladstone, Barbara and Henry Gooss, Cornelia and Ralph Heins, Sara and Randall Hogan, Chris and Vicki Kellogg, Jo Carole and Ronald S.

ALL THE ARTS AND CULTURE YOU NEED ARE ON SHELTER ISLAND

By Dan's Papers Staff

With so much happening on the North and South Forks, sometimes we overlook-or simply pass across without a second thought-Shelter Island. But there’s so much going on during the summer on the Island, that you won't want to miss.

Founded by Toby Perlman in 1994, The Perlman Music Program (PMP) offers unparalleled musical training to young string players of rare and special talent. With a world-class faculty led by Itzhak Perlman and a signature summer program on Shelter Island, PMP is developing the future leaders of classical music within a nurturing and supportive community.

The young artists participating in the Chamber Music Workshop will kick off the 2018 season on Friday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m. with a concert and reception. Two weeks later, the same students will close the Chamber Music Workshop with a four-conceit chamber music marathon on Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30PM each day.

On Sunday, June 10 at 4:30 p.m. at the Clark Arts Center, faculty members ltzhak Perlman, Merry Peckham, Roger Tapping, Don Weilerstein and Vivian Hornik-Weilerstein join the young artist participants of the Chamber Music Workshop to perform classical chamber music masterworks.

PMP's inspiring master teachers will present their annual concert under the performance tent on Friday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m. Arrive early and bring a beach chair and/or blanket.

A community favorite, the Annual Family Concert will take place Sunday, July 8 at 11:30 a.m. Merry Peckham, along with students, fellows and faculty, introduces the world of classical music through popular songs, fun skits and colorful costumes. Afterwards, young audience members take part in the "Instrument Petting Zoo" with coaching from PMP students. 73 Shore Road, Shelter Island Heights. Perlmanmusicprogram.org.

As Toby always says, "We're not just educating wonderful musicians, we're shaping wonderful people".

MUSIC, ART AND MORE THIS WEEKEND ON SHELTER ISLAND!

"My first time coming to The Perlman Music Program on Shelter Island was in 2011, the first summer after I moved to the United States.  I still vividly remember the excitement when I was on the ferry approaching the Island, or rather approaching a musical heaven.  It was the most amazing two-and-a-half weeks at the Chamber Music Workshop.  The passion for the music, the appreciation of life, and the friendships not only were created on the campus, but also have remained around me through the years.  Now, every summer, I see younger PMPers posting pictures of their ferry trips on their way to Shelter Island.  I always feel so lucky that I used to be one of them, and I am one of them. 

The Saturday night recital program features three of the greatest Austro-German composers of the 19th Century: Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.  The works dated from the very beginning of the Romantic period all the way to its end.  The three composers, under the influence of Beethoven, not only carried the great Austro-German tradition, but also found their own unique voices, leaving us some of the most beautiful works in western music history."

On Saturday, March 3, The Perlman Music Program (PMP) held a spectacular concert and dinner at Kristy and Jim Clark’s stunning Palm Beach home. With the vital leadership support of Kristy and Jim Clark, Emilia and Pepe Fanjul, and Vicki and Chris Kellogg, the evening honored Toby and Itzhak Perlman’s dedication to classical music’s bright future. For the eleventh year in a row, philanthropists and music lovers gathered to share their passionate support of the Perlman’s exceptional students and alumni. 

This special annual event is made possible through Kristy and Jim Clark’s profound generosity and dedication to The Perlman Music Program. “I was inspired when I first met Toby and Itzhak and learned about PMP,” said Jim Clark. “I went to Shelter Island, heard some of the concerts, and decided to encourage my friends and neighbors in Palm Beach to get involved. An incredible amount of talent has come through their school–it’s turned into a big success.”

After a reception, guests gathered in the elegant living room to hear a joyful Mendelssohn string quartet, Handel/Halvorsen’s virtuosic “Passacaglia” for violin and cello, and a stirring piano quartet by Dvorak. Violinists Jenny Jin, Nathan Meltzer, Clara Neubauer, and James Thompson; violists DJ Cheek and Caeli Smith; cellists Bethany Bobbs, Sterling Elliott, and SuJin Lee; and pianist Kyle Orth brought each masterpiece to life.

After a standing ovation, Toby Perlman moderated a spirited Q&A session. Guests and musicians delved into a discussion of artistry, education, and the next generation of classical music. Maestro Itzhak Perlman contributed his own observations, to the delight of all the guests.

When asked how PMP contributed to her studies, an artist enthusiastically responded, “I joined PMP when I was 15 years old, and have spent more than eleven years in this program. PMP is unlike anything else. The impact is enormous. It’s a year-round investment in us, the students, and creates a family feel that you don’t find anywhere else. It’s a privilege.”

Jim Clark summed up with a spirited challenge to all in attendance to support PMP’s incredible talent. Toby Perlman expressed her heartfelt thanks to all, and in particular Emilia and Pepe Fanjul and Vicki and Chris Kellogg for their vision and leadership, before inviting guests to experience the “PMP magic” firsthand in New York City, Tel Aviv, and Shelter Island. Guests joined the young artists and toasted the phenomenal performances at a festive dinner under the stars.

PMP is grateful to the supporters who raised more than $150,000 to fund vital scholarships and year-round educational efforts in Florida, New York, Israel, and Shelter Island: Carol and Sander Abend, Lenny Ackerman, Mark Addison and John Noffo Kahn, Larry and Mickey Beyer, Wendy Bingham and Howard E.

On Thursday, February 1, The Perlman Music Program (PMP) celebrated the artistry of wine and music at the annual Wine Dinner and Charity Auction. The evening brought together nearly 120 supporters in the elegant Le Bernardin Privé for dinner designed by Chef Eric Ripert, music by PMP’s extraordinary young artists, and an exciting live auction directed by Jamie Ritchie, Worldwide Head of Sotheby’s Wine. The event raised an unprecedented $760,000 in support of Toby and Itzhak Perlman’s students, alumni, and faculty. 

The evening kicked off with a stylish reception sponsored by Krug Champagne. Guests enjoyed Krug Grand Cuvée poured from magnums while placing their bids on fun silent auction packages. Highlights of the silent auction included: fashion by Karl Lagerfeld Paris and New & Lingwood, club seats for the Mets at CitiField, dinner at Lincoln Ristorante, and vintages of Dalla Valle, Domaine Faiveley, Grace Family Vineyard, Chateau Haut-Brion, Chateau Pontet Canet, and more.

Maestro Itzhak Perlman gave a warm welcome, and encouraged guests to raise their paddles high for PMP! An exquisite five-course dinner was served, designed by Chef Eric Ripert, and including a cheese course personally selected by Michael Affatato of the Village Cheese Shop in Mattituck, NY. Courses were paired with vintages from Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Napa, generously arranged by Kongsgaard Wine, Duclot la Vinicole, Acker Merrall & Condit, and Katherine and Peter Kend.

Jamie Ritchie took the podium and presided over a thrilling and spirited live auction. Highlights included Krug Champagne, Sine Qua Non, Marcassin, an Imperial of 2015 Chateau Margaux, Chateau Petrus, Chateau Latour, dinners at Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, The Modern, and Tribeca Grill, a weeklong getaway in a luxury Paris apartment, and a complete Napa Valley travel experience with visits to Meadowood, the Napa Valley Reserve, Bryant Family Vineyard, Cardinale, and Quintessa.

Toby Perlman introduced three musical interludes performed throughout the evening by PMP’s captivating young artists: excerpts from Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in F Minor, the Handel / Halvorsen “Passacaglia” for Violin and Cello, and – to top off the evening – the incredible Mendelssohn Octet for Strings.

Kick off this season of giving, and take part in Giving Tuesday with us!

The Perlman Music Program is incredibly proud of our students and alumni for #givingback to the communities where we live and visit.

Scroll down for a few favorite outreach moments in our local schools...

As part of our 2017 Alumni Chamber Music Retreat, PMP made two visits to the Shelter Island School.

At our 2016 Israel Residency in Tel Aviv, PMP students accompanied young Israeli musicians under the baton of Itzhak Perlman.

PMP students paid it forward again alongside local musicians at our 2016 Sarasota Residency in Florida.

Help us keep paying it forward! Many thanks for your generous support of PMP.

"This will be [The Perlman Music Program's] 24th summer coming up. We keep the program very small. During the seven-week program we take 40 or fewer students, aged 12 to 18. Community is important, so they need to behave as a community and trust one another, which means we have to be honest all the time. The music is an excuse. It’s really all about community."

Toby Perlman, 2017 Billboard interview

I believe the students should feel that they own the solutions. I want to make sure they don’t just come to the lesson and think, "OK, I’m going to wait and see what the teacher says." When they come to a lesson I let them play a little bit and after they finish, I ask, “So what do you think?” Sometimes they come up with perfect answers and I think, you don’t need me. Why don’t you just listen to yourself and do what you think? I say, “Imagine if you were a critic and you were criticizing your own playing.” I want to make sure that they’re involved in the process.
