Violinist Jonathan Leviim has performed on every continent and in over 70 countries, with all the major orchestras, and with many leading chamber musicians. He has played in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including: Cologne Philharmonic Hall, Munich Philharmonic, Dusseldorf Philharmonic Tonhalle, Philharmonic Hamburg, The Schauspielhaus- Berlin Concert Hall, National Arts Center in Ottawa, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Centre Colon in Madrid, Spain and Sydney Opera House, Australia.
He performs with great passion and warmth, and with breathtaking technique. “Jonathan is a genius – his passion for the violin is amazing,” said one concertgoer recently. He has a trademark rapport with his audience (who are often left speechless by his talents), and also loves bringing his musical gifts to regional communities, despite having vast experience in some of the world’s most prestigious venues. This concert is a unique opportunity to experience the brilliant sound of the violin at the hands of a maestro, in an informal, friendly and spontaneous atmosphere.
