Max and Me dedicated to choral master Robert Ruberto

“Max and Me” is dedicated to the memory of Choral master Robert Salvatore Ruberto 1932-2016. If you are extremely fortunate you might once in your lifetime meet someone like Robert who makes all the difference; not just to you but to literally countless others. Choral master Robert Ruberto was a soul filled with music, love, generosity, wisdom, humility, inspiration, passion, laughter and strong opinions about everything. His students became doctors, lawyers, professors, scientists, philosophers, and musicians. He said, “I choose to teach in high school because the young people there are still pliable.” He filled our heads with dreams, poetry, wisdom, encouragement, discipline, beauty, fear, laughter and hope with Bach, Brahms, Beatles, and Leonard Bernstein. When awards came around in this life, he wasn’t interested saying he’d been honored enough, but I believe his great reward is now just beginning.
