Annual Concert & Dinner in Palm Beach

Hosted By Kristy and Jim Clark with Emilia and Pepe Fanjul

On Saturday, March 14, The Perlman Music Program (PMP) held its eighth annual concert and dinner at Kristy and Jim Clark’s stunning Palm Beach home.  Co-hosted by Emilia and Pepe Fanjul, and with over 250 music lovers and philanthropists in attendance, the event honored Toby and Itzhak Perlman’s dedication to nurturing the next generation of classical music artists. 
This special annual event is made possible through Kristy and Jim Clark’s profound generosity and dedication to The Perlman Music Program.  “I was inspired when I first met Itzhak and Toby and learned about PMP,” said Jim Clark.  “I went to Shelter Island, heard some of the concerts, and decided to encourage people in Palm Beach to get behind chamber music.  An incredible amount of talent has come through their school–it’s turned into a big success.”
The evening began with cocktails and champagne on the veranda, followed by a performance in the Clarks’ elegant living room presented by several of PMP’s outstanding students and alumni.  The concert included quartets by Beethoven and Schumann and a quintet by Mendelssohn, presented by violinists Mariella Haubs, Abigel Kralik, Nathan Meltzer, Doori Na, and Areta Zhulla; violists William Bender, Molly Carr, Matthew Lipman, and Jameel Martin; cellists Daniel Mitnitsky, Sebastian Stoger, and Brook Speltz; and pianist David Kadouch. The talented and poised performers introduced each piece and brought the composers to life in their own words.  
During the exceptional concert, Jim Clark moderated an informal Q&A with Toby Perlman.  Their spirited conversation amongst these two friends ranged from the growth of the program over the past 21 years, the international reputation of the Program and its alumni, the beautiful Shelter Island campus where PMP calls home, to recent outreach in local Palm Beach schools.  Toby concluded with thanks for Jim and Kristy, Emilia and Pepe Fanjul, and PMP Board members in attendance Jay Dweck and Vicki Kellogg, stressing that helping young musicians realize their gift is a responsibility shared by all.  To bring the evening to a rousing close, the guests toasted the incredible music and beautiful weather at a festive dinner under the stars.
Guests on March 14 included: Rod Aboff, Mary and Irwin Ackerman, George Albrecht and Victoria Pollingue, Irma L. Anapol, General Carter Clarke and Irene Athans, Pat and Fred P. Auman, Jr., Doreen and Gilbert Bassin, Claire and Lawrence A. Benenson.
