Disability History Month runs from 22nd November to 22nd December, and commemorates and highlights the achievements of people with disabilities. The theme of Disability History Month this year is disability and music.
Itzhak Perlman - Virtuoso Violinist: I know I played every note looks at the formative years of the disabled violinist Itzhak Perlman's life and career. Perlman is a violinist, conductor and music teacher who has performed worldwide. He contracted polio at the age of four and has walked using leg braces and crutches since. In 2015, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Perlman's spokesmanship for the disabled and his light-hearted ebullience have won him an affectionate following.
