Cincinnati Conservatory of Music - Musical Grandfather Frank Weinstock

While we were in Cincinnati for the GBS VIP days, we decided to go visit Frank Weinstock, concert pianist and professor at the CCM. Our teacher, Rob Auler, used to take lessons from Dr. Weinstock, so we thought it would be neat to get a picture with our musical grandfather. We didn't know for sure if he still taught there, much less where his office was, or if he'd even be there. But we went anyway, and after asking around we finally found his studio. Much to our delight we heard music coming from the room so we knew he must be in there. We saw on his lesson schedule sheet that he would be done teaching a lesson soon so we figured we could catch him then. As it turns out, we did get to meet him and (as you can see) got a picture together. He was very surprised and happy when we told him of our connection ("grandchildren" through musical lineage), and thought it was the coolest thing. He was very nice, and we enjoyed our little visit very much.

What a neat story!! Are you girls going to GBS?? You'll be a lot closer to us ~ about 3 ~ 4 hours. We have some Youth from our Church that go there. Let us know!!
