The Sounds of Memories

I made this work in memory of Dov Ronen...the conductor of the "Ramat - Gan youth band" ,in which I took part for 8 years,as a teenager,playing the Clarinet. One of the best, enrich experiences of my adolescence. We had concerts in Israel...and also abroad,in Germany,Switzerland...and few states in U.S.A. More states in Europe,not in my time though...This man was responsible to the musical education of hundreds of teenagers each year,during 40 years working as a conductor and director. He was really a GREAT person. For this digital collage,I use few photos taken in Agfa Pocket,probably;The top of the upper work,is a photo of part of our band in a concert in Germany...at the bottom of this work is few clarinet's players in a concert in the "Yale school of Music".Dov is the conductor inside my Clarinet's box....also one of my Silk designs of notes.Today,I will be at his funeral.Farewell Dov...May he rest in peace. The bottom photo,is our band's members in Bonn Germany,1980...a group of 70 players. Copyright (c)Nira Dabush
