Subj: [kl] Michael Rusinek Concert
Date: Fri, 28 Jun 2002 11:35:58 -0400

Greetings to all! I have been less attentive to the computer for the past
several months because my mother had a cerebral hemorrhage in February and is
still recovering in a nursing home. Please keep us in your prayers.

Meanwhile, if you have never heard Michael Rusinek (principal clarinet,
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra) play, you owe it to yourself to do so. Last
evening, I enjoyed Michael's performance at the Kingston (RI) Chamber Music

Michael played the Beethoven Septet in E-flat major, Opus 20. He was
fabulous. As some of you may already know, Michael studied under Abe Galper
at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. One story goes that Michael
was so fearful one summer of missing lessons with Abe that he accompanied the
Galpers (Abe and Charna) to Israel!

Michael's dedication certainly has paid off. Never have I seen such stage
presence. And Michael is a chip off the Galper block in another way: he is a
delightful, personable, and warm individual.
