About Anne Akiko Meyers

Anne Akiko Meyers studied violin at the Community School under the mentorship of Alice and Eleonore Schoenfeld from 1977 to 1983. Celebrated around the world, Ms. Meyers has been actively touring for over 30 years, recorded over 34 albums, and was honored as Billboard’s top-selling classical artist of 2014. A champion for living composers, Meyers actively commissions and regularly premieres works including those by Mason Bates, John Corigliano, Morten Lauridsen, Arvo Pärt, Wynton Marsalis, and Einojuhani Rautavaara. Chicago Classical described her as “one of the most adventurous soloists on the international scene today” and the New York Times has said her “playing flows from the heart.”


About Alice and Joe Coulombe

Alice and Joe Coulombe will be recognized as civic honorees for their philanthropic and community contributions. The 2016 Taste of Colburn event marks the first time the Colburn School has chosen civic honorees. The Coulombes have been tireless champions of the performing arts in the Los Angeles area for decades, and their generosity has been instrumental in supporting the growth of the Colburn School and its programs for many years.
