Dallas Festival Honors Famous Cellist Who Survived WWII Concentration Camps

SMU festival runs through Saturday

Cellists are coming to Dallas from across the country to remember and continue the teachings of Lev Aronson, a cellist who survived concentration camps during World War II and later became the principal cellist in the Dallas Symphony.

The fifth annual Lev Aronson Legacy Festival will feature master classes, presentations and recitals from cellists who learned from Aronson.

The festival runs June 10-17 and will be held at Southern Methodist University's Meadows School of the Arts.

Concert tickets are $35.00, or $25.00 for students and seniors. The master classes are free and open to the public. 

According to the festival website, Aronson is "one of the most influential cello teachers of all time."
