The New York Times called David Dworkin, the maestro who "sparkles with high-spirited virtuosity." This Jersey boy got his start in high school in the late 1940s with clarinet lessons at The Williamsburg (Brooklyn) Community House where he met his mentor the late Metropolitan Opera Orchestra clarinetist Ben Armato. That relationship nurtured David who went on to play in both the American Symphony and Met Orchestras, as well as to conduct orchestras across America and abroad. In 2002 he created the acclaimed exercise program CONDUCTORCISE®, where "you feel the beat as well as the burn” (Times-Picayune) which has received rave reviews across the globe, and has been featured in the New York Times, Town & Country Magazine, and NBC’s Today Show. CONDUCTORCISE® was named one of North America's six most innovative active aging programs by the International Council on Active Aging.
