good friend of mine, Richard
Basehart."
The Richard Basehart
Playhouse, a 99-seat theater
in Westwood, Calif., took
five years to build. It was
completed in 1985.
"Property like this costs
money, and you don't make
any money from it," said
Wynant, who is an estab-
lished oil painter and
sculptor in California. "But I
wanted to give something
back from all the good things
I've received from the com-
munity."
While H.M. is painting
Hollywood, his brother Max
is making music in the Big
Apple.
"Music ran in the family.
My grandfather played the
fiddle; my father played the
fiddle, and a couple of my
uncles played the fiddle, so I
thought it was rational that
I play it also," Max said.
"When I was 6, I started
studying the violin, and it
came easy."
An all A-student and a
class president, Max won

several academic scholar-
ships, but he put his college
education on hold to pursue
a dream of playing the violin
professionally. "Like every
violinist I wanted to play as
well as Yasha Heifetz."
Max got his first profes-
sional job with the Ballet
Rousse de Monte Carlo and
toured throughout the
United States. When he was
20, he joined the Pittsburgh
Symphony. A year later,
Max returned home to play
with the Detroit Symphony
Orchestra. He then became
part of the Chicago Sym-
phony, and since 1946, Max
has been with the New York
Philharmonic. At 25, he was
its youngest member. Today,
Max has been working with
the Philharmonic longer
than any of its musicians.
In 1968, Max, then 47, ap-
plied to the Columbia Uni-
versity School of General
Studies. After being ad-
mitted, he had a program
designed which allowed him
to attend classes between
rehearsals and perfor-
mances. Five years later, he
received his degree — a B.A.
in history. He went on to
earn his master's in the
same subject.
"Our mom and dad saw to
it that we got the education
so that we could be where we

educational
field ahead of
the professional
field, and that's
why I stayed in
Detroit."

Weiner

are today," said Wynant,
who attended Wayne State
University. "It wasn't easy.
We grew up during the
Depression."
Max and Wynant's big
brother, Charles, still
resides in Detroit. Charles
started playing the saxo-
phone and clarinet when he
was in high school. A recent-
ly retired music teacher and
guidance counselor at Cass
Technical High School,
Charles played with the
Leonard Smith Detroit
Concert Band for more than

"I played all
the 'heavies' in
these TV shows
and films."
H.M. Wynant

40 years. And he's been per-
forming with the Eric
Rosenow Continental Or-
chestra for more than 30
years.
He also lists directing the
Oak. Park Civic Chorus for
20 years and Congregation
Beth Achim's Choir for 15
years in his musical
credentials.
"I chose the educational
field ahead of the profes-
sional field, and that's why I
stayed in Detroit;" said
Charles, who received an
M.A. in music from Wayne
State University.
Charles was the only one
of his brothers who spent
time in the United States
Army during World War II.
"I was a tech-4 sergeant
assigned as solo clarinetist
with the U.S. Army Ground
Forces' Band, stationed in
Washington D.C.," Charles
said.
When he's not entertain-
ing, Charles composes
music. He has had two of his
pieces, "Colors Flying" and
"American Band Master,"
published.
