ISAAC STERN 100
The commemoration of Isaac Stern’s centenary aims to be more than just a celebration of his accomplishments as one of the foremost American violinists of the 20th century. As an instrumentalist, musician, teacher, cultural ambassador, social advocate, and civic leader, he left an indelible mark on the musical and cultural landscape around the world, and tirelessly adhered to his belief in young people and in music as an agent of change and a force for good.
To honor his legacy in the spirit of his lifelong activism, it is the goal of the Isaac Stern Centennial in 2020 to initiate a yearlong series of events in his name, not just in performance, but in calls to action and service in and with music.
This website is a virtual museum that reflects Isaac Stern’s life, and invites uploaded contributions of memories, stories, photos, or announcements of events — anything inspired by Isaac Stern’s legacy. There is no offering too large or too small.
