[CLASSICAL TRIBUTE] In this memorial concert for its longtime music director, Jacob Avshalomov (who died this year at age 94), PYP has convened musicians who performed with him to play several of his compositions and music composed by his son, David (who’s also a conductor and will lead part of the concert) and by his father, Aaron. Avshalomov’s other son, Daniel, a violist in the renowned American String Quartet, will be there as well. The concert also includes Avshalomov favorites by Paul Dukas, Thomas Tallis and Ralph Vaughan Williams. “Mr. A” led the nation’s oldest youth orchestra for four decades until he retired in 1995.
