About Ronald Stein
Ronald Stein began playing the piano at the age of six and was quickly recognized as a prodigy. As a teenager studying in Chicago at the Stewart School of Music and the American Conservatory of Music, he distinguished himself in recitals and competitions.
Ronald made his professional debut at Chicago's famed Showboat restaurant and went on to entertain at some of America's finest hotels, restaurants, and private clubs.
In 1987, he began an eleven-year engagement as pianist and entertainment director for internationally known art collector and real estate developer, Raymond Nasher, regularly performing at Nasher's prestigious NorthPark Center in Dallas. With this exposure, Ronald was soon one of the most well-known musicians in Dallas and gained a substantial public following. He later went on to an eleven-year engagement at Dallas’s exclusive Northwood Club and long-term engagements at other premier Dallas venues including the Adolphus and Intercontinental hotels.
Ronald lent his talent in support of many civic and charitable organizations including the Junior Group of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon and the Dallas Can Academy. He appeared frequently in local television coverage of events at which he was performing and was profiled in a feature article in the Dallas Morning News.
Known for his extensive repertoire and ability to play widely varied styles of music, Ronald was popular with Dallas’s social elite for weddings and private parties.
Over the years, Ronald has entertained many notable personalities including Texas Governor Bill Clements, U.S. First Lady Laura Bush, and Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England on her visit to Dallas in 1991.
Ronald lives in suburban Dallas. Having retired from full time performing and the demands of show business, he enjoys entertaining seniors at retirement communities.
