I would like to introduce my readers to an old friend that I have had the good fortune to get reacquainted with recently. His name is Aaron Dworkin and he is the founder and president of the Sphynx Organization, a non-profit group that helps black and latino students find a place in the world of classical music through the funding of outreach and educational programs, scholarships and internships. I lost track of Aaron and have been out of touch with him for the past 10 years or so and I'm very pleased to find him again, and to see that he has followed through on his extraordinary promise.
"My Readers" of course refers to Ed Brayton, not me. I've never been a comedian. I'm not sure I've ever even been funny.
