The 2021 season of the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival will present music lovers with a dazzling range of world-renowned artists typically seen in New York, London or Chicago. The concerts of the Festival's 20th season are packed with a stunning array of star power. With a celebrated career spanning five decades,  Pinchas Zukerman reigns as one of today’s most sought-after and versatile musicians as a violin and viola soloist, conductor, and chamber musician. He is renowned as a virtuoso, admired for the expressive lyricism of his playing, singular beauty of tone, and impeccable musicianship, which can be heard throughout his discography of over 100 albums. Mr. Zukerman has been deeply committed to music education and as part of his outreach, teamed up in 2002 with four protégés to form a string quintet called the Zukerman Chamber Players. Beginning in 2011 Zukerman, along with cellist Amanda Forsyth and pianist Angela Cheng, began offering trio repertoire. Invitations from major festivals and venues led to the launch of the Zukerman Trio in 2013. Since then, the ensemble has traveled around the globe and performed at such major festivals as Ravinia, the BBC Proms, Edinburgh, Verbier, and Bravo! Vail.
