Gold fever in Colorado, the Oklahoma land rush, and railroad expansions in the west all contributed to the early life of violin virtuoso Louis Persinger.
Born in the Central Illinois village of Rochester in 1887, Louis became the pride of his hometown as his international fame soared even before he graduated from the Leipzig Conservatory of Music. His acclaimed performing career in Europe and America was followed by more than three decades as professor of music at The Juilliard School. Persinger's students included Yehudi Menuhin, Ruggiero Ricci, Isaac Stern, and Camilla Wicks.
Have Violin, Will Travel - The Louis Persinger Story, offers an imaginary journey with author Ray Bruzan as he weaves together the actual places and people who contributed to the life of violin virtuoso Louis Humphrey Persinger.
