“Harry’s First Hundred Years- A Conversation with Harry Rabinowitz”, Monday, March 28, 7PM, Kennedy School, 5736 NE 33rd Ave., Pdx. Free and open to the public. “From Aretha and the Beatles to RoboCop and Cats, Harry Rabinowitz’s remarkable musical career has earned him world renown. Awarded an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth for his outstanding service in music, Harry will add centenarian to his list of accomplishments when he turns 100 on March 26. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1916, Harry showed real talent on the piano at an early age and soon found work playing in Johannesburg jazz bands and teaching music students. After "discovering" Europe in the 1930s, he spent years as a conductor for BBC Radio and then conducting scores for iconic British and Hollywood film and television productions, notably a series of Merchant Ivory movies. Since the late 1990s, Harry and his wife, Mitzi, have been Portlanders five months out of the year (while spending the remaining seven months at their 400-year-old farmhouse in France). They enjoy the many musical and cultural offerings of the Rose City, not the least of which is the abundance of beer and wine. Forty-five years ago, Harry, as an original member of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) was among the first Brits to stand up and demand local, fresh, and flavorful ales. For his big centennial bash, McMenamins has brewed him a very special ale to his specifications, which he drolly named ‘Harry's Downfall’. Come join the celebration of Harry's 100th, listen to him talk about his century of musical expeditions, and raise a pint in his hono[u]r!” http://www.ohs.org/events/harrys-first-hundred-years.cfm
