  • Philadelphia Musicians/Former MossRehab patients to Perform at All About Art Preview Party April 24

    Published: 04/17/2014


    Contrabassist Harold Hall Robinson and pianist & singer Keith Garner will be sharing their talents when they perform together at the preview Party for MossRehab’s annual international juried art exhibit and sale, All About Art on April 24 from 6:00 pm—9:00 pm at MossRehab’s Elkins park campus. But a love of music and the stage aren’t the only things these two professional musician share.

    They’re also both former MossRehab patients who credit the renowned physical and cognitive rehabilitation hospital with saving their music.

    Internationally acclaimed artist, Harold Hall Robinson is currently finishing his 18th year as the principal contrabassist with The Philadelphia Orchestra. Prior to this, he has performed with various symphony orchestras for decades. Mr. Robinson credits the therapy he received at MossRehab Elkins Park a few years ago (after a surgery on his hand) with restoring his ability to play music, and for getting back to the Philadelphia Orchestra in a short amount of time.

    Recording artist Keith Garner has sung and played piano on his two released albums and is working on a third. Then, in 2003, a severe car accident left him with a crushed skull and a Traumatic Brain Injury. He suffered loss of sight in his right eye, hearing in the right ear and was told that due to the area of the brain injury, he would probably never again regain his ability to sing, play by ear or compose music again. But at MossRehab Tabor Road, he would re-learn balance, coordination, thought processes and eventually be able to walk, focus with one eye, and become self-sufficient again. Garner started to work at the piano whenever he had the opportunity and with endless support of dedicated doctors, therapists, hospital staff, friends and family, Garner battled back and shared his experience by writing the song Miracle.
