Up-and-Coming Violin Soloist Delights Dinner Guests with Photos and Autographs


PALM BEACH, FL (January 20, 2014) – Following a sold-out concert in the Pavilion of the Flagler Museum and surrounded on the outside by torrential rain and lightning, members of the Palm Beach Symphony proceeded to the famed home’s west wing and enjoyed dining with the orchestra’s special guest artist, Itamar Zorman, posing for photos and grabbing autographs from the sure-to-be famous violinist.

While raining down compliments of the evening’s charging Palm Beach Symphony performance, dinner guests eagerly awaited a turn for a photo opportunity with the young musician, who has been cited in the press as a “virtuoso of emotions.” Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel in 1985 to a family of musicians, Zorman graduated from the Israeli Conservatory of Music in Tel-Aviv in 2003, where he began his violin studies at the age of six. He has performed as a soloist with the American Symphony Orchestra in Carnegie Hall, among many others and was recently awarded the 2013 Avery Fisher Career Grant.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring this emerging young artist to Palm Beach and give our members and their guests the unique opportunity to personally meet him in such an intimate and elegant setting,” noted David McClymont, Palm Beach Symphony Executive Director. “We are grateful for the support of our members and donors for making it possible for the Symphony to continue to enhance its performances with exciting talent.  Additionally, we especially thank our evening’s sponsor, Sieglinde Wikstrom, for making this special event possible.”

Palm Beach Symphony members in attendance included Julia Amadio, Patricia Andrews, Garo and Tina Artinian, Dorian Baldwin, Helen Bernstein, Walter Baum, Marguerite Rosner, Hans and Sigrid Baumann, Bill Blanks, Joan Sherwood, Tom Boland, Lurana Campanro, Dr. Jose Figueroa, Christopher Cassidy, Mercedes Cassidy, Katherine and Gerald Combs, Natasha Consigli, Jean Dolan, Renata Franco, Paul and Sandra Goldner, Joan and Lowell Yaeger, Elaine Kay, Jackie and Link Klein, Carol Kmec, Alex Langhorst, Virginia Longo, Amy and Michael McGowan, Dale and Marietta McNulty, Jeannine Merrien, Denise McCann, Leslie Rose, Dorothy Sullivan, Mary and Don Thompson, plus a host of others.
According to McClymont, in the Palm Beach Symphony’s forty year history, many guest musicians have gone on to become well-known professional performers and Symphony members have the exclusive occasion to join them in a social atmosphere in some of Palm Beach’s finest venues.

Members enjoy not only a spirited series of orchestral concerts, but also an array of additional musical and social events throughout the season, including the opportunity to meet and dine with orchestra members and the special guest artists. Other member benefits include invitations to the season kick-off cocktail party at Club Colette, the Dinner Cruise, an evening of sailing on a luxury yacht on the Intracoastal Waterway, and the pre- and post-concert dinners at venues such as Mar-a-Lago and Café L’Europe.

Single tickets are now on sale and memberships are still available for the 40th Anniversary Season. For more information on tickets and membership opportunities, please contact the Palm Beach Symphony at 561.655.2657 or
