  2. Hi, Charlie!
    I just did a Google search on your name, found your website, and I thought I’d drop a note.

    I was Earlham, class of ’74 (actually ’75) and played the violin.

    I found David Rivinus on-line a few years back while trying to track down Karla Blum. I sent her several emails over the next year or so, but, alas, never received a reply. Then, just last week, I saw on-line that she had died about a year ago. So sad; she lived a long and fruitful life.

    Remember the nights we spent with Bill Snyder playing Haydn’s Gypsy Rondo? How about those great runs of Strauss’ Die Fledermaus and Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro? And who could ever forget you banging out the piano accompaniment to Mozart’s Impressario while slowly descending into the pit via Wilkinson Theatre’s “neato” stage!

    I was always envious of your studio in your Richmond home. Two 7-foot Steinways side-by-side, and the complete works of Schubert, hardbound, and in full score on your bookshelves! I always thought I would have such a room in my house. Alas, my abbreviated work career (as a computer programmer) never allowed that to materialize. But I did eventually buy a Yamaha 6-foot grand which now takes up half my living room. I’ven’t played the violin for a number of years now–there’s just not anyplace close enough to Tulsa for me to get needed repairs done.

    Ah, the good ol’ days! Thanks for taking a few minutes for allowing me to reminisce!
