George David Kieffer is a composer, pianist, author, attorney and civic leader.

Mr. Kieffer’s Memorial Day composition, “Arlington,” debuted with the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra in 2014.  He added lyrics to Arlington in 2015 and it was released in connection with Memorial Day, 2015, with vocals by the world famous Los Angeles Master Chorale.  His “Fanfare for the Special Olympics” was selected as the fanfare for the 2015 Los Angeles Special Olympics and his piece “The Special Now” played with the Running of the Flags during the Opening Ceremony.  In May, 2016, four of his piano compositions were performed by the pianist Angela Cholakyan at the Arts and Culture Center in Suzhou, China.  His music has also been featured in movies and television, including Pink Panther 2, Billy: the Early Years, Rebound, and The L Word.

Still, while he has quietly composed songs and compositions his whole life, he has only now begun to bring forth his music in a more public way.  His first love being solo piano has inspired the release of his debut piano album, Encounters with the Moon (2019)!

As a practicing lawyer, he was named by the Los Angeles Daily Journal and San Francisco Daily Journal as one of the “Top 100” lawyers in California in 2010 and Los Angeles Lawyer of the Year in 2019 for Administrative and Regulatory Law by Best Lawyers.  He is a principal co-author of the Los Angeles City Charter and has received numerous public service awards for his civic work.  He continues to serve on the Board of Regents of the University of California, having served two years as board Chair.  Mr. Kieffer is also the author of the Strategy of Meetings, published by Simon & Schuster.

Mr. Kieffer is already at work on his second solo piano album and plans to record his first orchestral album in Fall, 2019 in Prague.
