Haitian violinist Romel Joseph was pulled from the rubble of his New Victorian School after 18 hours in which he 'recited every concerto he'd played.' His legs are shattered, several fingers broken; he lost his pregnant wife in the disaster and the school he founded to teach poor Haitians music was destroyed.
He was one of the first members of Violinist.com, the 11th to join, probably in the 1990s (to give you some idea of what that means, we signed our 23,900th member today), though he had not logged in for some time, so the e-mail address I have for him may be old. Do any of you know him, and what are your thoughts on a Violinist.com effort to some funds for his school?
