New Prarie High School - New Carlisle IN

Speaking as someone who has booked hundreds of performers into the community, Mr. Gilewitz is without question the easiest to work with. He adapts well to a variety of stage settings, is extremely resourceful, and relates well to a wide variety of individuals. I always consider it a huge bonus to find performers who are not only great musicians but who are also great people; Richard Gilewitz is one of those rare individuals.

“First of all, Richard Gilewitz is one of the finest musicians I have ever met.  His ability to perform AND relate to audiences of all ages is remarkable.  His witty sense of humor and down to earth persona make his presentations some of the most enjoyable I have ever attended.  We have always enjoyed watching the connection he makes with the students.  Whether he is teaching, explaining, hosting Q&A or just performing the students are right with him.  It is truly exciting to observe.  He is a professional who realizes the importance of contact with the public- of all ages.”
