Old Bridge, NJ – Nov. 18, 2019 – Renowned local pianist and composer Dave Schlossberg will perform his “Facing the Music” program at the Old Bridge Public Library on Sunday, December 1st at 2pm.
In 2005, at the age of 21, Schlossberg suffered a permanent and traumatic spinal cord injury at the hands of a drunk driver. Since that day, he has worked diligently to reclaim his life and career. During this presentation, he will speak about the real-life consequences of driving while intoxicated. His presentation, which includes a piano concert, seeks to inspire and engage audiences—both young and old.
A Monroe resident, Schlossberg is involved with numerous musical groups around the New Brunswick area. A graduate from The College of New Jersey with a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance, he serves as accompanist for many groups, including the acclaimed New Jersey Cantors Concert Ensemble; Makhelat Hamercaz, the Jewish Choir of Central New Jersey, and Kol Dodi, the Jewish Community Choir of Metro-West. He also serves as the musical director for the Music Theatre Program of Middlesex County Arts Middle School. His compositions of Jewish choral music have also won acclaim, including from the Foundation for New Jewish Liturgical Music, and his CD, titled A Place Beyond Words, was awarded a Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement from the Global Music Awards.
