Itzhak Perlman is giving it awaymain
The violinist is choosing who should share the $2 million Genesis prize he was given in Israel:
The violinist announced Monday that he would donate NIS 3.2 million (approx. $850,000) to organizations in Israel that connect people with disabilities with the classical arts. The biggest donation — NIS 940,000 (approx. $250,000) — will go to the Perlman Music Program at the Tel Aviv Conservatory to support young, talented musicians.
