Club Meeting – Speaker: Eric Hausman-Houston, author of WWII memoir “The Lost Artist: Love Passion War”

As a concert pianist in the 1980s, Eric Hausman-Houston was offered a Julliard scholarship by Abbey Simon. He was signed by Global Records, who changed his name from Hausman to Houston. His first album, Beethoven Sonatas: Moonlight Pathetique Appassionata, received critical acclaim and won the Grammy for Best Producers. To promote his second album, Tonight and Forever, a collection of popular classical piano pieces, Houston went on a one hundred concert tour. Responsible for all travel expenses, he went into debt. Planning to sit out his four-year contract, Houston wrote his first play, Playing with Fire. Playing with Fire was picked up by Earl Graham of the Graham Agency and optioned for Off-Broadway by Lois Deutchman, producer of Oil City Symphony. Houston never returned to the piano. After having worked as a ghostwriter, The Lost Artist marks Houston’s first book written in his own voice and name.

We meet 6:45pm for 7:00pm at Playwright Tavern, 202 West 49th Street, 3rd Floor (betw Broadway and 7th Ave).
