by Diane Peterson, Press Democrat, April 27, 2017

Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman, who will perform with the Santa Rosa Symphony for its seasonal finale on May 6-8, will hold a free masterclass at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 4, at the Green Music Center’s Weill Hall. The Stradivari violin virtuoso will give an open lessons to two Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra students: concertmaster Alex Chui and Miranda Ronan, both 14.

The public is invited to the open lessons, during which a participating student performs a solo work and is coached by Gluzman. The audience listens and learns and is able to pose questions.

Born in the Soviet Union, Gluzman studied with Zakhar Bron in Russia, Yai Kless in Israel and Dorothy DeLay at the Juilliard School in New York City and was mentored by the late violinist Isaac Stern.

Gluzman, whose latest CD features Sergei Prokofiev’s Violin Concertos No. 1 and 2, will perform Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 2 with the symphony on his 1690 “ex-Leopold Auer” Stradivari violin, on loan to him through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.

To reserve a ticket to the free masterclass, call 707-546-8742 or stop by the symphony’s Patron Service Office, 50 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa. The Green Music Center is located on the Sonoma State University campus in Rohnert Park.
