ISB Spring Cultural Series

At ISB, community engagement is one of our core values. Each year, the Advancement Office hosts a range of events that highlight our community's expertise and brings together our shared core values. Here are some of the events we hosted last year, and please watch this site to see what cultural events 2019-2020 will bring to benefit ISB's Annual Fund for Excellence. Purchases of tickets at the Adventurer, Advocate, and Leader level will count towards participation in the Fund for Excellence. We hope to see many parents, students, alumni families, and staff at these year's events!

Our Jeffrey Zeigler Cello Performance

Last April 12th, ISB parent and world-renowned cellist Jeffrey Zeigler performedThe Sound of Science, a concert and album presenting eight pieces of brand new music by seven celebrated composers, including Paola Prestini, Jeffrey's wife and fellow ISB parent! The event was open to ISB community members and their friends.

All proceeds beyond the cost of the event went to benefit ISB's Annual Fund for Excellence.

Jeffrey Zeigler has released dozens of recordings for Nonesuch Records, Deutsche Grammophon, Cantaloupe, and Smithsonian Folkways and has appeared with Norah Jones on her album Not Too Late on Blue Note Records. Zeigler’s multifaceted career has led to collaborations with a wide array of artists from Yo-Yo Ma and Roomful of Teeth to Tanya Tagaq and Bonnie “Prince” Billie, and from Philip Glass and Laurie Anderson to John Zorn. Jeffrey Zeigler was the cellist of the internationally renowned Kronos Quartet for eight seasons. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Avery Fisher Prize, the Polar Music Prize, the President’s Merit Award from the Grammys and The Asia Society's Cultural Achievement Award.
