Lev Aronson Legacy Festival

Season II: June 9 - June 14, 2014

Presented at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX

A Week of Outstanding Cello Performances

Lev means heart

To never give up in the face of adversity, that's one definition of having heart. One of the most legendary teachers of the cello in history not only had heart, but was the embodiment of dedication to music and his students. Lev Aronson survived years of torture and loss to become an incredible influence over hundreds of musicians. Using music to survive, he brought his particular fiery teaching style to Dallas and created some of the greatest cellists that ever lived.

Join us for Season II concert series and experience the heart of Lev's music making each evening on SMU Campus June 9 - June 14, 2014.
