Rubinoff and his Violin
Rubinoff and his Violin; a name that brings back fond memories for anyone who remembers the golden age of radio. Before Andre Rieu, violinist and conductor David Rubinoff captured the hearts of millions on the air and record crowds of 225,000 at live concerts.
Rubinoff was discovered by Victor Herbert at the Warsaws Royal Conservatory in 1911, who brought the prodigy to the US. In 1931 Rubinoff was signed by NBC to join Eddie Cantor on the Chase and Sanborn radio program, where his orchestra included Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller. Inspired by his friend John Philip Sousa, Rubinoff dedicated his life to promoting a love for music in young people, performing at thousands of schools, including concerts in Circleville in 1959 and 1980. A Columbus resident for 15 years, Rubinoff was guest of honor at the Ted Lewis Museums opening in 1977.
Now you can experience Rubinoffs musical memories live for the first time in 80 years, featuring violin virtuoso Steven Greenman and a 28-piece orchestra conducted by Joseph Rubin. Circleville's own Sarah Julien will be soprano soloist.
Hear your favorite songs of the 1930s: Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Cheek To Cheek, Dancing in the Dark, St. Louis Blues and much more, all in Rubinoffs original arrangements saved from destruction by The Ambassador of the American Songbook, Michael Feinstein.
DON'T MISS a special pre-show lecture at 6:15 PM by David Ohrenstein, Rubinoff's accompanist for 15 years. This lecture will be held in the auditorium and is open to all ticket holders.
