The Musical Moxie & World Class Artistry of DAVID STROUSE

David Strouse is if nothing else an iconoclastic individual. When he isn't investing in his hometown of Saginaw, Michigan with welcomed and much needed renovation in the real estate of is historic neighborhoods or performing his duties as VP FInance for CBS Television in Los Angeles, the 1973 Arthur Hill High school graduate invests his energies into his artistic passion as a consummate pianist and organist that has traveled and toured stages throughout the world.
"That taught me commitment and also helped pay the room and board while I was away at college," reflects Strouse.
Apart from this weekly church gig while he was attending college, during the summer months while off from college David also sold pianos at Grinnell Brothers on Washington Avenue and worked as an in-store piano teacher, while also enjoying the memorable experience of playing organ at the Temple Theatre in-between movies. "I love performing on that Barton organ," he reminisces, "and probably saw the beginning and ending of The Omen about 35 times but never the entire movie."
David admits his passion for music has focused primarily on the piano & organ.
"I knew without even asking that funding church music programs is a challenge," states Strouse, "so told him that if it wasn't too early in the season I would do this performance as a fundraiser to help fund his music programs.
"The selection of Gigout that I'll be doing involves this great organ chorus dialogue, which will open the concert; and then I will be including Eugene Granados, who was a Spanish pianist," continues Strouse.
"Those are the organ pieces and then I'll be doing a set of piano pieces," notes Strouse.
Given the rigors of his daily schedule at CBS Entertainment, Strouse still finds time to practice both organ and piano daily. "I have a fixed practice schedule," he explains. "My Rogers organ is electronic so I can use headphones with it. I had a pipe organ once but it wasn't practical because there was no volume control - you either played it or you didn't. It was hard to live with me when I had that pipe organ," he laughs.
In conclusion, Strouse encourages people to attend his performance, not only for the beneficial fundraising involved, but because "Non-church going people are now aware of how spectacular that organ at First Presbyterian truly is."
"When you think of an organ like that you usually think of big city churches. Many churches throughout the city have similar treasures; and for a city the size of Saginaw to have these instruments is unusual for a city of it's size....and very special."
Pianist & Organist David Strouse will be performing at First Presbyterian Church, 121 S. Harrison Street in Saginaw on March 30th at 3:00 PM. One performance only. $10.00 donation suggested.

David Strouse Sets Immaculate Architectural Restoration Standards for Urban Revitalization

The building's current owner, David Strouse, is a CBS Los Angeles TV executive and Saginaw native. Strouse along with his partner and design architect Marcelo Goncalves, and John Meyer, the construction architect, saw potential with the building and an opportunity to preserve a part of Saginaw's rich history that needed to be saved.
The building where Strouse Apartments is today was one of those constructed during this time period, and its preservation was a must for Saginaw, as seen by Strouse and the local community.
Strouse made clear that he did not intend to save these buildings out of nostalgic feelings, to get rich, or to draw attention to his actions. "I did this to prove to myself and others that it could be saved; and because it is the right thing to do," Strouse stated at the apartment building's opening day speech in 2012.
"Every successful urban revitalization project in this country has begun in the historic core of a community; and the likelihood of success is linked directly to the number of historic structures remaining. They will never be replaced because they are impossible to replace. When they are gone, they will be gone forever".
David Strouse's philosophy on turning this building into an apartment complex was based on hiring local labor whenever possible and restoring rather than replacing. For instance, he hired craftsmen to tile the kitchen splashes rather than installing pre-fabricated ones. The floors were restored rather than just covered up. He also stresses that saving these buildings are the "Green thing to do. The energy, labor and materials contained in the structure of this building are resources - some of them not replaceable - that should not be thrown away".
To better help the local community and economy, Strouse hired and relied on local businesses rather than ship items from overseas to help build the by saveshare">apartments, "It felt good to know that the vast bulk of the dollars flowed back into the community in the form of wages earned".
Two of Strouse's most recent tenants are local bartenders, Ana Arce and Matthew Mitchell.
They (Strouse, Goncalves and Meyer) really did a good job of putting it together and making it something."
Strouse added onto what Goncalves had said, bringing up how before they started there were two walls left inside, and the staircases were so old and rickety they would have been deemed illegal for usage, "The design has a lot to do with the affordability of it, too".
As of today, Strouse by saveshare">Apartments on Hamilton Street are full of tenants.
This is just one of many projects that David Strouse has worked on in the Old Town and Downtown areas of Saginaw. He also owns an apartment building on Michigan Ave a block away from these, and has recently purchased several buildings downtown that he plans on restoring much the same way he has with these.

David Strouse

An email from CBS Television executive and local developer David Strouse was also among the packet of communications prepared for City Council on April 21. Strouse, a gay man, said he wanted to voice "strong support" for the ordinance.
"Personally, I don't see any down sides," he said. "It's the right thing to do."
Strouse added that the ordinance could also send a message to the wider world that Saginaw is open-minded and willing to embrace change. He pointed out that members of the gay and lesbian community, in Saginaw and elsewhere, can often be found at the center of efforts to revitalize neighborhoods like the city's Cathedral District.
"There are certainly down sides to not embracing such a change," Strouse said.
