Bernard Block’s poems have appeared in the NY Quarterly, the Minnesota Review and the Colorado Review. He has published four chapbooks: Quest; Prometheus Returns; Portraits; and To Music. Born and raised in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, he attended Cornell University and Brooklyn College. Hitch-hiked out to California in 1965 and lived in the Haight-Ashbury through 1967. Gave poetry readings at the I and Thou Coffee Shop, City Lights Bookstore and Golden Gate Park. He returned to NYC and studied with the poet Colette Inez in the mid '70s. Read at Speakeasy, Emilie Glen’s, Henry St. Settlement and The New School. Recently he has read at Nightingale’s, Cornelia St. Café, The Bowery Poetry Club, Brownstone Poets, Green Pavilion, Phoenix, SOB’s, TOMI Jazz (a Japanese jazz club), Penny’s, StringPoet and Molloy College.  He is presently organizing his many recent poems into thematic collections for future publications.



 


Diane Block is a professional classical violinist who received her training at the Manhattan School of Music, with a Master’s Degree in Violin Performance in 1980.  It was there, at MSM, that she developed an interest in Romantic and Modern Poetry.  This interest was shared by close musician friends at monthly musical and poetry salons.  Diane has free-lanced as section violinist in the metropolitan area for the last 30 years.  She is in her 24th year as Orchestra Director in the Farmingdale School District on Long Island.  She also maintains a private violin studio in her home. Diane met her husband, poet Bernard Block, at the poet Emilie Glen’s home in 1982 and has been connected to the NY Poetry world ever since.  Originally she read other people’s poetry (and still does) but it was Bernie who encouraged her to write her own. There is an intimate link between classical music and poetry.  One seems to flow out of the other and her experience of  both art forms feels very much the same.
