The Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning Israeli-American is renowned as the pre-eminent violinist of the 20th century after coming to prominence at the tender age of 13 on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. Despite losing the use of his legs due to polio, he has overcome the odds to become one of the most successful violin virtuosos in the world and his haunting music work has featured in movies including Schindler's List and Memoirs of a Geisha.

The Civic Opera House is a 3,563 seat venue, making it the second-largest opera auditorium in North America. It was originally built for the Chicago Civic Opera, but today is the permanent home of the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Its excellent design allows for perfect sightlines from every seat and top-class acoustics. The Lyric Opera of Chicago bought the space it was renting and the venue underwent a major renovation in 1993, which was completed in 1996.
