On Monday, February 18, WNYC Studios will present a live taping of its acclaimed podcast Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin with special guest legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman at NYU Skirball Center.

In this one-on-one conversation, Perlman will discuss his life and career, from his upbringing as a polio-stricken child of refugees in Tel Aviv to his rise as an international star performing with the world’s most prestigious orchestras, to being honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015.

The evening will also feature performances by students from The Perlman Music Program in New York, an initiative Perlman’s wife Toby Perlman founded to support young musicians (ages 12 – 18) of rare and special talent from around the globe.

Hailed as “funny and insightful” by Financial Times and named to “best podcast” lists by Refinery29 and Today.com, Here’s the Thing is a series of intimate and honest conversations hosted by Baldwin. He talks with artists, policy makers and performers about their stories, what inspires their creations, what decisions changed their careers, and what relationships influenced their work.
