It was an enthralling, enchanted evening.

Malibu’s Maria Newman — violin virtuoso, composer and conductor, founder of both the Montgomery Arts Center for Music and Architecture and Malibu Friends of Music, daughter of famed composer Alfred Newman, and mother of five — presented “Breaking Through The Shadows of Greatness: Life Stories of the Musical Newman Family Dynasty” at MAHMA in Malibu on Nov. 27.

It is hard to adequately recount or describe the impact the Newman clan has had on America’s musical narrative.
