Aaron Robinson

So cool to see Aaron Robinson in the Maine Sunday Telegram Audience section today. Aaron is a former student of mine and one of those students who had a great deal of spirit, energy, and a smile on his face. Now many years later (Aaron is 43) he has been busy writing music. This week at the Parker B. Poe Theater at Lincoln Academy in Newcastle “The Legend of Jim Cullen” opens. When he started composing it,  Aaron didn’t know much about the lynching of Jim Cullen. The true story is about a “Canadian immigrant lynched in 1873 by a mob in northern Maine”.

Aaron was the music director for many shows at the Good Theater in Portland and the music director for Immanuel Baptist Church, where he created “Black Nativity – In Concert: A Gospel Celebration”. He has several CDs and was presented a regional Award nomination for his work on MPBN’s “Maine Arts!” series.

The article ends with this paragraph:

HIS TRAINING: Brian Allen, co-founder and artistic director at Good Theater, Braley and Robinson all graduated from Medomak Valley High School in Waldoboro. “In the 80s, that was a wonderful place. We had a slew of teachers and an administration who were art-oriented, big time. They instilled strong values in so many kids. It was a magical place. To know how much art and theater came out of there is really amazing.”

It is great to read about Aaron and hope you will take the time to read the entire article which written by Bob Keyes and located at
