In 2005, Music of Remembrance established the David Tonkonogui Memorial Award (DTMA) in memory of our beloved friend and inspiring colleague, cellist David Tonkonogui. Through this youth musician's award, we recognize the musical and spiritual values which David Tonkonogui expressed through his music and his life.

We welcome the nomination of Seattle-area youth musicians who can demonstrate an interest in performing music related to or inspired by the Holocaust. The honor includes a cash award of $500 to support continuing musical studies, and an invitation to perform at a Music of Remembrance concert.
