Dallas job for Pinchas ZukermanOrchestras
The Dallas Symphony has created a job for Pinchas Zukerman.
Zukerman, 72, is to be Artistic & Principal Education Partner for two seasons, starting in September.
Apparently it’s to do with scaling down the orchestra to chamber size during the remainder of Covid.
From the PR:
Zukerman will play-direct chamber orchestra concerts with the DSO, appear as violin soloist with the orchestra and collaborate with DSO musicians in chamber music performances during the two-year term. He will also lead, as an important component of this appointment, intensive chamber-music coaching and instrument tutoring sessions in partnership with Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts. “I am thrilled to continue the DSO’s relationship with Pinchas with this new role,” said Kim Noltemy, President & CEO. “Each of these activities will focus on an element of his incredible career and share his wisdom and talent with a new generation of performers.”
