NY Philharmonic “Concert to End Polio” with violinist Itzhak Perlman

Avery Fisher Hall 1
The New York Philharmonic performance at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center had a performance tonight to help stamp out polio worldwide. Polio, the A.I.D.S. of the Baby Boomer generation, still occurs in a few countries, and the Rotary and other sponsors are trying to end this disease for all time. The concert was played without intermission, but Mr. Perlman was especially exquisite during the Bruch Violin Concerto in G minor Adagio … I cried. Otherwise, the concert was a non-stop potpourri, and I must say Avery Fisher’s Hall is not nearly as attractive as mine.

I got trapped in this sculpture and almost didn't make it to the concert.

This is AFH from the inside and the orchestra is New York's finest

The thingys above the stage must have a purpose, but I have no idea what.

Itzhak Perlman, one of the world's great violinists, once had polio

This is Itzhak Perlman. He is one of the world's great violinists, and he once had polio himself.

This is my friend, Elizabeth, with Avery Fisher
