In a one-night-only performance, violinist and polio survivor Itzhak Perlman will perform with the New York Philharmonic at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City on Wednesday, 2 December, 7:30 p.m.
Stricken with polio at the age of four, Perlman overcame great physical challenges to become one of the world's most celebrated musicians. Now, he'll help Rotary meet its greatest challenge -- to eradicate polio.
To buy tickets, phone the Philharmonic box office at 212-875-5656 (hours: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily) and mention that you're a Rotarian so you can access the block of tickets reserved for Rotarians until 1 November.
Tickets can also be purchased online through the Philharmonic, but they are not part of the Rotary ticket block. Tickets are expected to go quickly. All proceeds benefit Rotary’s US$200 Million Challenge.
If you can't attend the concert, donate online now to help eradicate polio.
