On Saturday, November 3rd at 8:00PM and 10:30PM the Inter-Media Art Center in
Huntington, Long Island, will host a concert with jazz/rock violinist JEAN-LUC PONTY.

Born in a family of classical musicians, JEAN-LUC PONTY began his musical education at the
age of five and graduated with honor from the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de
Paris at the age of seventeen. He began what was supposed to be a distinguished career as a
classical violinist with the Concerts Lemoureus Symphony Orchestra and, during this period,
began to listen to jazz, which changed the course of his career forever. JEAN-LUC PONTY
began playing with jazz groups in Paris quickly developing a reputation for his revolutionary
style of combining his classical virtuosity with his powerful approach. He recorded a number of
albums that were met with increasing critical success and brought him to the attention of a lot of artists who wanted his signature violin in their own projects, among them were Elton John, Frank
Zappa and John McLaughlin. Through his bold experimentation with electronics and synthesis,
JEAN-LUC PONTY liberated the image and capabilities of the violin from a purely acoustic,
largely classical or folk setting. He is a pioneer and undisputed master of violin in the arena of
jazz and rock.
