He is so accomplished. But I was told he was conscious and walking around before they took him to the hospital, so that’s encouraging. He’s under covers now, so they won’t know how bad it is for a while.” Ewart also is a sports dad, coaching the neighborhood swim team and youth baseball at the William S. Hart PONY Baseball and Softball League, where’s he’s on the board of directors, said neighbor Kathy Grimes. “He’s a totally involved father, really involved in all the kids’ activities,” Grimes said. “He coaches every sport his kids are involved with,” Garman said. “He’s so well-known.” Every year, he throws a huge Christmas party for friends and neighbors. His home is the one in the neighborhood decked to the hilt for every holiday, said neighbor Anne Reinders. VALENCIA – Violinist David Ewart is a man of many talents. A former member of both the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, his stringed performances are featured on more than 800 recordings by artists ranging from Neil Diamond, Ricky Martin and Elvis Costello to the soundtracks for movies such as “Spider-Man 2,” “The Notebook” and “Million Dollar Baby.” Ewart, his father, Hugh, who is concertmaster emeritus for the Portland Symphony, and his son, Michael, were critically injured when Ewart’s Via Escovar home burned early Tuesday morning. Ewart’s injuries included serious burns to his hand, and friends are hoping he will recover to again play his violin. “We walked by last night with the dogs,” Reinders said. “They were having a really nice party. Everything was lit up, lots of decorations, lots of people. This house is always decorated in the season.” Staff Writer Patricia Farrell Aidem contributed to this story.
