Rubin Sher Room Dedication Concert
Rubin Sher was monumental in the growth and development of our orchestra programs in the New Albany Floyd County School district as well as the Floyd County Youth Symphony. In 2015, the school board approved of the orchestra suite at 2015 to gain Rubin Sher's name. Our orchestras had the honor of performing a dedication concert for Mr. Sher. The evening included an alumni selection on the program, a ribbon-cutting, a reception, and a reveal of the updated display cases in the classroom. Rubin was a veteran and one of the original members of the Louisville Orchestra. His wife Nancy went on to direct the orchestras at Hazelwood Middle School for over 30 years, and their son, Sam, was a double bassist who graduated from NAHS.
