Marvin Levine | Principal Viola Chair

Endowed Merit Scholarship

Marvin Levine made SDYS and our aspiring musicians his primary community cause immediately upon hearing the Symphony Orchestra perform in 2002. With Reinette, his wife of 58 years by his side, Marvin made every SDYS concert a celebration of talent, hope and future. We are honored by a generous bequest that supports the principal viola chair of our Symphony Orchestra in Marvin’s memory.
