Friends have complied a beautiful tribute to Ira Weller, a violist for 30 years at the Metropolitan Opera, who died last month.

He was also the founding violist of the Mendelssohn String Quartet.


  • Nathaniel Rosen says:

    I am so sad about this. He was a wonderful violist and a great person. We played often before he joined the Met. So friendly, so professional, AND, he taught me to tie my bow tie.

  • Marty Kenyan says:

    Always sad to lose a talent.
    RIP old friend ….. sorry we could not reconnect before you left us.
