Sponsor a concert during the 2021-2022 season


During March 26-27, 2022, Music Worcester has planned a double-concert weekend with Itzhak Perlman, celebrating his return to Central MA and Music Worcester’s long-standing relationships with The Hanover Theatre and Mechanics Hall.

March 26 will bring “An Evening with Itzhak Perlman” to The Hanover Theatre, where the violinist will present his own story through live performance, narration, video, and conversation with his wife.  Starting out as a Polio-survivor child prodigy accepted to Juilliard at 13 years old, the evening’s program will progress through the decades to the present, with a particularly poignant story of John Williams convincing him to play the soundtrack to Schindler’s List towards the conclusion.

March 27 will feature Mr. Perlman in a full recital at Mechanics Hall with his longtime pianist, Rohan De Silva.  While the program will be announced closer to the performance, recent recitals have included major works by Franck, Handel, Bruch, and Mozart.

We are seeking to create a select pool of donors to help support Perlman’s weekend in Worcester, specifically due to the combined artistic expenses over both days ($225,000). One leading sponsorship has been secured for March 26, and Music Worcester is looking to increase support for the overall weekend and particularly the March 27 recital.  All participating donors with sponsorship gifts of $1,250 or more will receive tickets to the concert(s).


In a normal concert season, tickets only cover half of production costs. We hope you will consider a donation.
