A Different Kind of Deadhead

A truly dedicated fan.

Gary Grossman, 64, traveled from Long Island to Lancaster to perform with the Lancaster Symphony Chorus this weekend, just as he’s traveled to Kansas, Iowa and Wisconsin to sing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

He’s not a professional musician, just a retired certified public accountant with a 40-year love affair with this grand piece of music that has captivated audiences around the globe with its well-known “Ode to Joy,” which Grossman will sing in German with the chorus in the fourth movement. Read the rest here.

I'm suitably impressed !
