About Us

“And with music, our spirit will come alive and soar to heights beyond reality, to cleanse and sustain us and give us peace in these hectic times.”  Ronna Binn-Hersh

Classical Encounters Foundation was formed to provide a venue for outstanding musicians to perform in the welcoming atmosphere of an elegant private home with two of the best steinway grand pianos in the city of Los Angeles.

In the fragment above you’ll hear one of these fine instruments.

Peter Klimo, who presently studies for his masters at Yale, is performing La Vallee des Cloches from Mirroirs by Ravel.

This was a Tribute to one of our Board members, Dr. Tyler Tom, who passed away last year. He is greatly missed by not only Peter, but by all of us. His spirit remains and we are grateful for having had the opportunity to know him.

Peter was the first performer who received a Classical Encounters scholarship. The foundation is extremely proud of his accoplishments. He graduated this year at Eastman in Rochester NY.
