Isolation is the Norm for Creative Artists. I think all parents would like to see our children with an intense passion and dedication to the arts.  This picture implies that the young lad, actually built his own violin. Notice the saw leaning against the table.  Who was David Rubinoff? He dreams about being as skilled as Rubinoff and His Violin.

Who was Rubinoff and His Violin?

Isolation
Dave spent a lifetime entertaining children and adolescents thanks to a life time grant from the U.S. state department through the efforts of his close friend, the march king, John Philip Sousa. On occasions I toured with him at numerous public schools.

David Rubinoff made a fortune in the 1930’s because of his love of music. He rose from the most humble beginnings in Kiev to incredible stature in America. An example being playing for 225,000 people at Grant Park in Chicago while conducting the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra. He told me, they turned away another 25,000 at the door. I was his arranger and accompanist for fifteen years. Jimmy Petrillo, head of the musicians union in Chicago, gave him a diamond and ruby medal commemorating this event.

Raising ones level in performance takes countless hours of practice in solitude; or, in some cases, with a small dedicated, ensemble. Music has quite a bonus: It is one of the few professions you can improve on with age. Even during the current pandemic, opportunities come a-knocking. My wife, a fabulous singer and I were just asked to do an hour and fifteen minute concert which will be broadcast live around the world. We will also feature some excerpts from shows we jointly wrote. Scheduled date is November, 8, 2020. Details will shorly be posted.
