The Regional Arts Concert Series at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach will again present a nine-concert evening series and a six-program matinee series during the 2015-2016 season.

Violinists abound with Itzhak Perlman in recital (December 16), Arnaud Sussmann playing Tchaikovsky with Miami’s New World Symphony under Cristian Macelaru (January 11) and Benjamin Bellman offering the same concerto with JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic (February 7). James Ehnes solos with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Stéphane Denève in the Sibelius Concerto (February 27) and Stefan Jackiw tackles the Prokoviev Concerto No. 2 with the Russian National Orchestra conducted by Kirill Karabits (March 7).

Other artists and ensembles appearing include pianists Jan Lisiecki and Khatia Buniatishvili, cellist Danielle Akta, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony under Peter Oundjian, the Cleveland Orchestra under Franz Welser-Möst, the Jerusalem Symphony conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky and members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
