“Sunday Morning” Matinee: Itzhak Perlman & the Juilliard Orchestra

The Juilliard School in New York City, one of the world’s premier educational institutions for the performing arts, has undertaken many virtual projects since the coronavirus pandemic necessitated remote learning for its classes. Despite being scattered throughout the world, students are managing to create art together.

In this video produced exclusively for “CBS Sunday Morning,” renowned violinist and conductor Itzhak Perlman (a Juilliard alumnus and faculty member) leads the 48-member Juilliard Orchestra in a virtual group performance of “Nimrod” (Variation IX) from Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations.”

Each of the musicians recorded their individual parts in more than 35 international locations — from Massachusetts to California, and from Ireland and Spain to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea.

“Presently we are scattered all over the globe,” said Perlman. “But our commitment to making music, and sharing music, is as strong as ever.”

On Friday, May 22, more than a third of the orchestra’s members will be among the 280 graduates taking part in Juilliard’s 115th commencement — this year a virtual ceremony that will feature cellist Yo-Yo Ma and which will be streamed at juilliard.edu/live beginning at 11 a.m. ET.
