This blog is to honor my 99-year-old father-in-law, Henry Shapiro. He has been playing piano professionally since he was 13 years old and is now performing on Facebook Live every Saturday at 5:00pm to help lift everyone’s spirits during this pandemic. He is an inspiration to his many fans. You can learn more about him via his Facebook page (run by his wife)
Henry was featured on CBS News recently.
