Robbie Rittman, a local native, closed out the first of two music series the Arts Alliance is hosting in Marion. He brought over 70 in attendance, including 4 dogs.
Robbie Rittman is a singer/songwriter from Marion, IN. He grew up doing musicals, plays, sketch comedy, show choir, and more. Robbie attended Indiana University and studied vocal jazz and filmmaking. He wrote his first song at the age of 23 when his father passed away. The song is called “My Little Man,” and it can be found on Spotify. Since 2018 he has been living in Los Angeles pursuing music.
We are thankful for Robbie, and his friends that brought such a huge crowd!
