Young violinist, Brandon Garbot to study with Itzhak Perlman

Congratulations are in order for Brandon Garbot, because he is one of the few people to be selected for the Perlman Music Program. Garbot (age 16) is a former PYP concertmaster and currently a member of the Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra's violin section.

Here's the announcement from the Community Music Center's Spring bulletin:
Brandon Garbot has been accepted to the exclusive Perlman Music Program, run by internationally renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman. Only 24 students age 12-18 world-wide are admitted. He'll be participating in lessons, 6 weeks this summer with one-on-one instruction from Mr. Perlman and getting follow up opportunities during Christmas and Spring Break holidays. Brandon hopes to attend the Cleveland Institute of Music Young Artist Program this fall (as HS Junior) to study with William Preucil.
