2014 Lev Aronson Legacy Festival Free Concert
Cellist Lev Aronson miraculously survived Nazi concentration camps in World War II through dedication to music and pure determination. Dallas became his new home, where he developed his unique method of teaching, served as principal cellist of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for almost 20 years and became known as one of the most influential cello teachers around the globe.
His life and legacy are now celebrated annually with a week-long festival of world-class performers and teachers from the Meadows School of the Arts at SMU. As a part of the festival, these renowned artists will perform a free concert at the Dallas Holocaust Museum in honor of Lev Aronson’s life and work.
