Classical music aficionados are in for a treat as The Perlman Music Program (PMP) welcomes back talented alumni for a weekend of not to be missed performances.

A Stires-Stark Alumni Recital featuring Max Tan on the violin will take place on Saturday, November 11 at 5 p.m. The performance will include sonatas by Janacek and Mozart, and Chausson's Poeme, accompanied by pianist Cameron Richardson-Eames. Tickets are $25 for adults and free for those 18 and under. There will be a meet-and-greet festive reception with the artists following the show.

"Since I've first come to PMP in 2007, Shelter Island has been a home away from home," reflected Tan, who has performed at prestigious venues like New York City's Carnegie Hall and Boston's Symphony Hall, and shared the stage with the Longwood Symphony, Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, and Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra.

Tan founded Harvard's River Charles Ensemble, a conductor-less chamber orchestra, and was named the inaugural Kramer Fellow at the White Mountains Music Festival. "To come back and give a recital at PMP as an alum is incredibly special because there are people from the community who have followed PMP students all throughout the years, and to have grown as an artist with their support is so important and touching," he explained. "I hope this recital is, in some ways, a way for me to give back, to say hello again after a few years, and to share a musical narrative that I find personal."

On Sunday, November 12, it's all about family, music, and fun. Hosted by Tan and Bethany Hargreaves - who also attended PMP, there will be classic music, snacks, and activities at the Clark Arts Center on PMP's Shelter Island campus, starting at 11:30 a.m. The event is free and open to all, but recommended for children ages 4 to 10-years-old.

"One of the most important things I learned at PMP was the diversity and extremity of expression that music can convey," added Tan. "In that spirit, I hope this recital program speaks to that quality. In all pieces, there is a story structured, albeit in completely different styles (the Mozart juxtaposed with the Janacek especially), and the goal is to share music on the more recent end of the Classical timeline and experience that dimension of expressiveness that, perhaps, deserves delightful, passionate, and visceral discovery."

Toby Perlman founded The Perlman Music Program in 1994 with the mission of "offering unparalleled musical training to young string players of rare and special talent." The program's world-class faculty is led by the legendary Itzhak Perlman.

The Perlman Music Program's Campus is located at 73 Shore Road in Shelter Island Heights. For more information, call 212-877-5045 or visit perlmanmusicprogram.org.
