One man's mission to keep a musical spirit alive

Mar 07, 2011 10:14 am

As we embark on Mardis Gras 2011, we thought it key to share this preview of a film by WGXC-FM friend Gillian Farrell of Woodstock, who has been following Hudson Valley piano technician and salesman Adam Markowitz of Adam's Pianos to New Orleans in the years following Hurricane Katrina as he delivers pianos, free, to deserving churches, schools and individuals as a one-person crusade to keep the Crescent City's musical heritage alive. A few years back, this reporter followed Adam's trail to Louisiana and looked up the pianos in their homes, where all were being treated with special care, and the joy brought by the man's largesse still brings tears to the eyes of all touched by this unique endeavor.
