The Stamford Symphony Orchestra is presenting a virtual Gala, "Together Again," on October 24.  Music Director Michael Stern invited long-time friend, world-renowned violin virtuoso Pinchas Zukerman to be part of the celebration.  Kate Remington talks with both of them.

Both Michael and Pinchas say that having the chance to perform together after the months-long pandemic was a huge morale boost, and they hope the gala will provide an uplifiting evening for audience members who stream it.  The benefit honors Stamford Healt, and more information is available on the symphony's website.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington joined WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.
