Feel the love this weekend with guest violinist Itamar Zorman as he performs with the Utah Symphony in its Valentine’s Day concert.

The concert will be held Feb. 14 and 15 at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City and will feature pieces from Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Mendelssohn.

Zorman began his violin practices at the age of six, training with professionals such as Saly Bockel, David Chen, Nava Milo and Hagai Shaham. Zorman has since received his Bachelor of Music degree from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.

Utah Symphony vice president of artistic planning Toby Tolokan shares why Zorman was invited to play with the Utah Symphony.

“Utah Symphony and (music director) Thierry Fischer invited violinist Itamar Zorman to join us this week because of his impressive performance background as well as noting his very prestigious awards, including 2013 Avery Fischer Career Grant and winning the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Russia,” Tolokan said.

Zorman will join the Utah Symphony in Tchaikovsky’s Concerto in D major for Violin and Orchestra, Opus 35 Finale: Allegro vivacissimo as the solo violinist.

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $18 by calling (801) 355–2787 or online by visiting utahsymphony.org. Tickets increase by $5 on the day of the performance and are available for sale at Abravanel Hall.
