  1. Hello Marvin!
    I attended the Dallas Symphony Pops concert w/ Feinstein.
    You are brilliant! I enjoyed your playing immensely.
    You are a genius I felt honored to hear!
    You are a hurricane of talent and your body of work is out of control!
    thank you. Monica

  2. Congrats, Marvin. You are most deserving and we are so very proud of and happy for YOU!!!!!

  3. I started re-visiting some of the music I enjoyed listening to while a young girl in the 1970’s. I realized much of which you had written. Learning to play clarinet — The Entertainer was a favorite! I was fortunate to grow up in a house full of music (my grandmother sang opera on the Yiddish stage many moons ago). That said, I just wanted to thank you for the songs — they transport me back to what was a wonderful time in my life. Best. Jewish Girl

  4. I was wondering how are you doing, I googled your name and found your website, then found this wonderful news the CINE Award !! you deserve it. Congratualtion! Peace and love …Najla — Australia.
