Speaking of Carnegie Hall...
This is the view from approximately where I was sitting in Carnegie Hall the last time I heard a concert there. That was about 30 years ago; the Cleveland Orchestra with George Szell. I did not take this photo. Interestingly, I auditioned for Eastman at Carnegie Hall, but not on stage. The auditions were in the office part of the building. It was pretty cool to tell people that I auditioned at Carnegie Hall, though.
Here is a photo a passerby took of my family in front of Carnegie Hall more recently:
Carnegie is a beautiful building to look at and listen in. We are so lucky that Isaac Stern campaigned to save it.
