David Weiss was a beloved mentor, friend, and advisor whose passion for music and life touched our entire community. The Weiss and Walker families, along with YMF, will present a tribute concert in celebration of David's life on Tuesday, June 24th, at the Aratani/Japan America Theater at 7:00pm. 

YMF is deeply grateful to David's family and friends for their guidance in selecting a few of his favorite pieces for the evening's program, including works by Mendelssohn, Mozart, Bach, and Dvorak. Ivan Shulman and Roger Kalia, YMF Debut Orchestra Music Director & Conductor, will conduct.

We are also honored to present a new work by composer Michael A. Levine dedicated to David. Entitled Remembrance, the piece features instruments David played (oboe, oboe d'amore, english horn, musical saw, penny whistle) and those his friends and family played (piano, bassoon, flute) as well as a two bar surf music section for the bass. (David was an avid surfer - it is said that he taught a third of the Los Angeles Philharmonic to surf. And one of his great surfing buddies was a bass player.)

A multimedia production will accompany the music.  Following the performances, attendees are invited to a reception outside in the plaza at approximately 8:15pm.

Tickets:  Free (RSVP requested, above).

By nurturing creativity and emotional expression through classical music, we enrich quality of life. YMF strives to expand current audiences and develop future ones by creating greater access to exceptional musical experiences. Our eight interconnected music programs provide an introduction to musical instruments and technique in addition to scholarships and performance opportunities for advanced students.
