Episode 14 – Just Who are the Heroes in a Symphony Orchestra?



If you attended concerts by the Cleveland Orchestra in the early 1950’s, or concerts by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra from the mid-1950’s to the early 2000’s, you undoubtedly were listening to Harry Taub playing in the violin section.  In Buffalo, you would have frequently heard him playing the violin solos from the concertmaster’s chair, since he served as the Associate Concertmaster for five decades.  It’s a long and distinguished career, certainly, but there is so much more to the story, and to the man.  Listen to his life story, as told by his wife of 50 years, Suzanne, and two of his children, Samuel and Sharon.
