Books and Beyond Welcomes Opera Singer and Author Laurie Rubin,
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Laurie Rubin has dedicated her life to fulfilling her dreams. Where she
found obstacles, she worked her way through them. When she encountered
barriers, she spoke out and employed her advocacy skills to surmount
them. Like many who face difficulty, she learned early the strength of
family and the importance of self advocacy. She grew up asking why and
in doing so carved out a career which successfully utilizes her skills
and vocal talent. Born in California, Laurie knew she wanted to sing.
From an early age, Laurie Rubin followed the difficult route of
classical music and opera and has achieved her dream. What difficulties
did she have to overcome? How important is family support in achieving
personal goals? In competition with so many other talented vocalists,
what does she do to stand out? What is a singing career and making CD’s
like? Has Laurie met famous celebrities? >From whom does she
receive inspiration? Why did she write the book available on Bard you
will read about below?
On our next show, join us in meeting and welcoming mezzo soprano and
author Laurie Rubin. She has achieved much of which she can be very
proud. Building a life is often a challenge. Taking a chance on a dream
and a passion is even scarier, for it takes all your hope and heart in
its realization. Greater Never one to give up on herself, she listened
to counsel but never allowed the naysayers to discourage her. In several
words, she is feisty and tenacious. She never settled for a maybe when a
yes was possible and found the answers that took her to the career she
has always wanted. I hope you will join us. Information about Laurie’s
book is available below followed by details needed to attend our next
Books and beyond.
