In Memoriam

Two Great Friends of the Classical Encounters Foundation who will forever play in our musical memory.



Peter Klimo Performs at Tyler Tom’s Memorial

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 clip above you’ll hear one of these fine instruments.

Peter Klimo, who presently studies for his Doctorate Degree at Eastman in Rochester NY, is performing La Valle des Cloches from Mirroirs by Ravel.

This was a tribute to one of our board members, Dr. Tyler Tom, who passed away in 2011. He is greatly missed by not only by 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 accomplishments.

The video above was shot at the home of Classical Encounters. The sound was recorded “live”.
