Robin Frost was born in Washington, D.C. in 1930 into a wonderful musical environment. His father, the late Frank J. Frost, was a prominent eastern businessman and an amateur violinist and music patron. Mr. Frost had a winter home in Ojai, California and in 1926 Mr. Frost along with Mrs. Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge sponsored one of Ojai’s first musical events, the Ojai Valley Festival of Chamber Music. The three-day festival was held in the Foothills Hotel and drew performers and audience from both the east and west coasts. Robin’s earliest childhood memories are of chamber music drifting up from downstairs as he fell asleep.
