Donald and Vivian Weilerstein, 2017 Luby Guest Artists

The Department of Music is excited for the 2017 Richard Luby Violin Symposium, an annual workshop named in honor of the founder of the workshop. This year marks the Symposium’s 10th Anniversary.

To commemorate this special anniversary year, the Department is honored to welcome violinist and pianist Donald and Vivian Weilerstein as the 2017 Luby Guest Artists. Eminent performers and teachers on the faculties of the New England Conservatory and the Juilliard School, the Weilersteins were also friends and musical collaborators with Richard Luby during their years at Eastman. We are thrilled to welcome them for a recital and masterclass.

The symposium runs from May 22-28, and events are free and open to the public.
