Documentary, 23 minutes, 2013, Produced & Directed By Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly.

Albert (Alby) Hurwit has heard music in his head all his life. But when he failed a piano sight-reading test in college, he believed his dream of doing anything musical was over. Instead he became a medical doctor. After almost five decades, he decided to retire from his successful practice, buy a roomful of computers and keyboards and teach himself to translate the music he heard inside. At the age of 70, Alby began composing a symphony. His music was the story of his Jewish family persecuted in Europe, fleeing to America in search of the American Dream -- an immigrant’s story of hope despite almost insurmountable obstacles. His music won the prestigious 2009 American Composer Competition. Now Alby is working on the next chapter of his life, proving you’re never too old to dream.
