Inspiring Scientists through Music: Friends Dinner with Martin Chalifour

For our Spring Friends dinner, we were honored by a very special guest, Martin Chalifour, Principal Concertmaster of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Music Coach at Caltech. Mr. Chalifour spoke to our audience about the importance of keeping music alive in the hearts of our scientists. He even performed with his Caltech student team for our guests as a special surprise! On behalf of our students and the Board of Directors, we thank Mr. Chalifour for being involved with Caltech’s performing arts and continuously mentoring and inspiring our students to do great science through his love for music!
