Ron has returned to his first love: composing in concert form. Golden State of Mind is a 16-minute symphonic suite depicting the beauty & drama of the California landscape and its cultural diversity, in three movements: “Yosemite,” “San Andreas” and “Olvera Street.” “Yosemite” (formerly titled Greetings!) was given its world premiere performance by the Marin Symphony, conducted by Music Director Alasdair Neale.
“I was gratified by the warm audience response. Congratulations again on a super piece — all the more impressive, as I said to the audience on Saturday, for it being your first time at that particular rodeo!” – Alasdair Neale, Conductor and Marin Symphony Music Director
Ron resides in Mill Valley, CA and New York City with his wife, author and journalist Cathryn Jakobson Ramin. A former Board Member of the Society of Composers & Lyricists he is currently a writer and publisher member of ASCAP.
