Gil Shaham

Thanks to the generous support and parternship of the Milwaukee Symphony, we are excited to announce that violin soloist Gil Shaham will be giving a masterclass for students of the String Academy on Saturday,  March 12, 2011, from 10:30-12:30, in the UWM Recital Hall.  This is a rare opportunity to  learn from one of the greatest violinists of our time.  The class is open to the public.

This same weekend you will have a chance to hear Mr. Shaham perform the Walton Violin Concerto with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.  The heart-pounding thriller Symphonie Fantastique of Berlioz will also be performed.  You don’t want to miss it!  Discount tickets are available to String Academy families.  Please contact Heidi (414-963-4729) for ordering information.  Deadline for discount ordering  is October 1st, 2010.  More information from the MSO online


The class was helpful, entertaining, and inspiring.  We had a great audience and the performers all played beautifully. Mr. Shaham gave some wonderful ideas for us all to think about and apply.  We thank Mr. Shaham for his generosity and kindness during his visit, as well as the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra for creating this opportunity.  Please enjoy these wonderful photographs taken by SAW parent Jonathan Kirn (see the full photo gallery here)
