Presentations

"Terrific!"  "Absolutely loved it!"  These are only two of the comments we received at the close of your performance at our library last Sunday.  My favorite compliment, though, was a declaration by a member of the audience who raved that it was the best event the Friends of the Library has ever held.  Naturally, we are hoping that you will consider paying us another visit.

to sessions at One Day University


One Day University partners nearly every week with professors from colleges and universities across the United States, renown for their teaching. Since 2006, we’ve offered nearly 1,000 lectures.

Orin Grossman is among the finest presenters we’ve ever worked with. His ability to entertain and educate virtually any audience on a wide variety of subjects is absolutely amazing. He weaves together academic research, personal anecdotes and musical talent so seamlessly that time virtually flies by when he is speaking—and always with a standing ovation!

This was my third attendance at One Day University. I've been very grateful to hear several other excellent lectures by outstanding professors at ODU, but last Saturday's was extra special & delightful! My friends and I also appreciated Professor Grossman's patience to stay a while and answer more questions about Gershwin at the end. Thanks to all of you!

*****

His description of the various musical elements that were used to construct this American classic was fascinating.

*****

An excellent presentation by a very knowledgeable and able presenter. We especially enjoyed having the piano available for Prof. Grossman to provide musical examples. We both really learned a lot about Gershwin, his music, and relevant aspects of his historical era.

When he gave us the break I didn't want it because I was so engrossed in the lecture!

*****

One of the most interesting and enjoyable lectures I have attended in a long time.

*****

The professor did an excellent job, speaking without notes, adding a little humor, being personal, etc. It was especially good that he could play passages on the piano as he talked about "Rhapsody in Blue". I was very glad I attended.

Professor Grossman is a delight! I learned so much about my favorite composer! Thank you so much for offering these wonderful programs!
