The Zelma G. Rivin Wonderful Wednesdays Summer Music Series: Pavel Ilyashov, Solo Violin (Portsmouth)

July 14, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

For the 2021 season, the Jewish Museum and Cultural Center will be live-streaming the Zelma G. Rivin Wonderful Wednesdays Summer Music Series, in addition to limited seating following CDC recommendations and Virginia mandates.  Please purchase your tickets in advance. Availability is limited for in person tickets.  Tickets are $20.00 in advance, and $25.00 at the door.

The Jewish Museum and Cultural Center is pleased to welcome back violinist Pavel Ilyashov. Pavel has been applauded by audiences throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas for his performances as soloist and chamber musician. The Miami Herald described his playing as a “breathtaking display of virtuosity and rhapsodic expression”, while the St Louis Post Dispatch hailed him as “a virtuoso from head to toe”.

A graduate of Philadelphia’s renowned Curtis Institute of Music, Pavel has performed chamber music with Yo Yo Ma, Jaime Laredo, Paquito D’Rivera, and members of the Guarneri, Orion and Emerson String Quartets.

Pavel’s performances have been heard on the popular radio program Performance Today. A debut CD under the sponsorship of the Buder Charitable Foundation was released to critical acclaim. Other recordings can be heard on the Naxos and Albany record labels.

Pavel is a full time member of the Virginia Symphony and a substitute violinist with the Philadelphia and Chicago Symphony Orchestras. In addition to performing, Pavel is a passionate and dedicated teacher. He has taught masterclasses at festivals throughout the Americas. Currently, he is on the faculty of the Governor’s School of the Arts and maintains a small private studio.
