JAMES ROSENBLUM                                  


Currently an associate at Senie & Associates—a law firm specializing in land use and environmental matters—James Rosenblum’s academic credits include a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Yale University and a Juris Doctor from Columbia University. After serious private piano study as a child and teenager, he’s kept musically active in adulthood through masterclasses and summer programs, and made the finals of two amateur competitions, both Chicago’s and WQXR’s Classical Moonlighter’s in New York. With his wife, Georgian-American pianist Ana Glig, he has recently made select duo piano and chamber appearances in Massachusetts, and in May 2019, the couple sponsored their first competition for young classical pianists in Gurjaani, Georgia. They’ve also toured Georgia three times, giving masterclasses and performances. James seasonally serves as pianist/organist at First Church of Truro, Massachusetts.
