Cellist Lev Aronson miraculously survived Nazi concentration camps in World War II through dedication to music and pure determination. Dallas became his new home where he developed his unique method of teaching, served as principal cellist of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for almost twenty years, and became known as one of the most influential cello teachers around the globe.
His life and legacy are now celebrated annually with a week-long festival of world-class performers and teachers at the Meadows School of the Arts at SMU.
