Renowned Violinist Itzhak Perlman spoke and performed for a sold out crowd in Rapid City Thursday night.
The 16-time Grammy Award winner stresses the importance of learning music as a young child.
Itzhak Perlman played violin on the Ed Sullivan show before he was legally old enough to drive.
Perlman gave a speech on the “Power of Passion,” and the importance of music for youth. He says music comes natural for children and they can develop talent for music at a young age.
He says it’s terrible that music education is getting cut across the country.
