13, draws musicians from around country jacob.jpg View/Post Comments Fifty to 60 musicians from around the country and overseas are expected to perform at a memorial service for Jacob Avshalomov, Oct. 13. The longtime former director of the Portland Youth Philharmonic died in April at the age of 94. He was the second director of the country’s oldest youth orchestra, leading it from 1954 to 1995. Musicians who played under Mr. A, as he was affectionately called, will perform a concert at Reed College’s Kaul Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13. Players are flying in from Germany and other far-flung locations to play works by three generations of Avshalomov composers: Aaron, Jacob and David. Both of Avshalomov’s sons, David and Daniel, are professional musicians and will attend the concert. David is a conductor/composer and will conduct part of the concert; Daniel is violist in the American String Quartet and will sit in as principal viola. Doris Avshalomov, Jacob’s wife, may attend, as well. Mezzo-soprano Alyce Rogers, a favorite singer of Jacob Avshalomov, will also perform. David Hattner, PYP’s current music director, will also conduct the concert, which will end with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, an Avshalomov favorite. “The outpouring has been incredible,” Hattner said.
