Tribute set today for Seatle Chamber Music Society founder

Seattle lost one of its great cultural leaders when Seattle Chamber Music Society (SCMS) founder Toby Saks died of pancreatic cancer Aug. 1.

To celebrate her accomplishments and her life, more than 60 top-flight musicians are gathering from around the country to pay tribute to Saks at 5 p.m. today in a free public memorial at Benaroya Hall.

SCMS artistic director James Ehnes is programming the 90-minute event, which will include many musicians of note.
