Moments in Music
"As many of you know already, I started a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation which focuses on continued development of adult musicians.  Our primary focus is creating performance opportunities both solo and concerto with orchestra, masterclasses, and chamber music.  Our inaugural concert will be held in Thayer Hall at the Colburn School on the 20th of December at 7:00 PM.  I hope to see many of you there as we begin our mission to serve and enrich the music community here in Los Angeles and abroad. We are fortunate to have Alan Chapman host this event and be prepared to listen to lots of beautiful music!"
~ Rufus Choi
