“Fall into Music,” our first virtual fundraiser held on November 1, felt like giving ourselves a joyful group hug! Dale Hikawa Silverman, Associate Principal Viola for the LA Phil, treated us to a live performance of a selection of Baroque pieces by J.S. Bach, Telemann and Gabriell. Dale had seamlessly “quilted” them together just for us. 

In the conversation at the end, she delighted us with stories of her journey as a musician. She was surprised to discover as a child that she loved playing the violin (yes, violin!) more than going outside to play. Years later when she was a successful violinist, she heard the voice of her previously unknown inner violist. The voice spoke to her out loud and demanded to be unleashed—and it changed the course of her career.
