Historical Note

Son of pianist Nadia Reisenberg, Robert Sherman (b. 1932) began his career in broadcasting as the Music Director and Program Manager for radio station WQXR in New York. In 1969, he began hosting the popular folk music program, "Woody's Children," on WQXR, followed in 1970 by the nationally broadcast program, "The Listening Room." He then expanded to television, hosting "Vibrations" on PBS in 1972 and appearing as a commentator for CBS's "Camera Three." He continued his work at WQXR, hosting the "Young Artists Showcase" program, which began in 1978, as well as several other programs through the 2000s. Sherman continues to broadcast today on Sirius XM Radio.

As an author, Sherman became a regular columnist for The New York Times starting in 1964 and also published several books on music. He began lecturing at New York University in 1969, the start of his active career as an educator.

In recent years, Sherman has devoted much of his energy to preserving the legacy of his mother and his aunt, thereminist Clara Rockmore, through memorial events, overseeing the production of biographical works, and writing program notes for their recordings. With his brother Alex Sherman, he compiled the materials for the book, Nadia Reisenberg: A Musician's Scrapbook, published in 1986 by the International Piano Archives at Maryland, home to Reisenberg's collections. Most recently, Sherman participated in the release of Clara Rockmore's Lost Theremin Album on Bridge Records in 2006.

Sherman, who celebrated his 75th birthday in July 2007, is still active today as a broadcaster, narrator, lecturer and author.
