Last Monday, musicians from around the world gathered at Benaroya Hall to remember cellist, UW music professor and Seattle Chamber Music Society founder Toby Saks. She died from pancreatic cancer this summer. Classical KING FM host (and KUOW alum) Dave Beck attended the memorial. He talks with Marcie Sillman about the memorial and about Saks' legacy.

Produced by Jeannie Yandel.

Correction 10/17/2013: In the broadcast interview, Dave Beck mistakenly referred to the composer of the Toby Saks memorial piece “Passing Tones” as Lawrence Dutton. The composer’s name is Lawrence Dillon.
