They are devoted to sharing valuable chamber music opportunities through their projects as well as their student program. Tony Press writes fiction, when he has questions, and poems when he thinks he has answers; thus, mostly fiction.

He claims 25 criminal jury trials, 12 years in a single high school classroom (plus 2 years at Paly), and a deep connection with Pop Warner’s old house in Palo Alto. He often claims his novel is almost finished.Lisa Van Dusen currently serves as Executive Director of the Palo Alto Community Fund She is a certified executive leadership coach and practicing artist.
