On the evening of Saturday, June 15, the Berkshire Bach Society will present violinist Joe Silverstein in concert for a celebratory event in honor of his 80th birthday.

The concert, at a private residence in South Egremont, Massachusetts, will include works by Bach, Haydn, and Mozart performed by Silverstein with a more than two-and-a-half century old violin that was formerly the concert instrument of 19th century female French violin virtuoso Camilla Urso. Joe Silverstein spoke with WAMC's Alan Chartock.
