This week in Mal’s World, Mal Vincent recalls the time he, as a novice music critic, was confronted with reviewing a performance by violinist virtuoso Itzhak Perlman in which one the soloist’s strings broke while he was playing! What was Mal to do? We’ll hear the story and we’ll also find out if Mal considers himself a “reviewer” or “critic.”

Perlman is part of the Virginia Arts Festival’s Spring lineup and performs at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach, Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 7:30pm.
