Autumn Leaves and a Pediatrician

One of the things I’ve enjoyed about having a blog is learning about all the unexpected places the saw shows up. There are many amateur saw players around the world, in a variety of other professions. I’ve learned about saw playing photographers, actors, ministers, and construction workers. These musicians play the saw for fun and to entertain their friends and family.

An interesting amateur saw player was Dr. George Koresuba. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 94, after working as a pediatrician in the North Carolina area for many years and retiring at the age of 92.  He also played the musical saw and recorded an album titled The Singing Saw of Dr. George Koresuba. Here he is playing “Autumn Leaves” to put us in the mood for the season.
