great talent" who plays "with
an impressive depth of feeling."

Anne Crowden. When David was 13, he received an invitation
to join an international group of 60 young music students at the
Yehudi Menuhin School outside London where he studied with
Simon Fischer. David continued his studies with Donald
Weilerstein and Miriam Fried at New England Conservatory of
Music in Boston and with Antje Weithaas in the

Pianist Roy Bogas received his training in New York and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He made his debut with the San Francisco Symphony at age 14, and at age 19 he became the accompanist to the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin, playing over a hundred concerts with him throughout North and South America. He has also played with Joseph Szigeti and many other well-known artists. In 1962 he was a prizewinner at the second Tchaikovski Competition in Moscow. He has performed as soloist with virtually every orchestra in Northern California and with many other orchestras in this country and abroad.
Mr. Bogas is Professor of Music at Holy Names University in Oakland, and is also Principal Solo Pianist for the San Francisco Ballet. An active chamber musician, he is the founder and director of the MasterGuild Series of chamber music concerts at Holy Names. He has led the Gualala July Chamber Music Weekends since 2003.
