Picture: Zafer, David

London, 1934. With his exceptional skill and dedication both as a performer and a teacher, David Zafer has earned international acclaim as one of Canada's leading assets in the field of classical music. In addition to the refinement of his own talents as a performer he has, for more than 30 years now, focused with remarkable commitment and innovation on developing young Canadian musicians. From 1966 to 1999 he has been a Professor of Violin in the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto, where he is 'professor emeritus' at the present time. He has been founder and director of the Chamber Orchestra at the Toronto University until his retirement. David Zafer is required to give master classes in prestigious schools, such as the Menuhin School in Surrey (England); the Meadowmount Summer School; the British University of Columbia; the University of Rice in Houston (Texas), and he is invited regularly by the Superior School of Music Reina Sofía. Also he has directed the European Seminary of Strings in Budapest and he has given master lessons in Prague. In 1998, Mr. Zafer conducted the Real Chamber Orchestra of Seoul (Korea) and this concert was televised to all the country. For 25 years he has been titular conductor and violin professor of the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra and he has made tours with this orchestra to the Young Orchestras Festivals in Aberdeen (Scotland), Boston and Banff. In 1997, he recorded a very successfully CD with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra during a live performance in the Ford Center for the Performing Arts of Toronto. At the present time, he gives private classes and he goes on performing with different orchestras and chamber groups. Also he counts on innumerable commitments in different festivals. His new project is the Toronto Chamber Youth Orchestra, of very recent creation.
