Ned Rorem in New York City - between 1 November, 1969, 12:00 AM and 1 November, 1969, 02:00 AM

from The Later Diaries of Ned Rorem 1961-1972, page 309:

At midnight, I performed Bertha, playing and singing each role, wishing I had the felicity of my host in being to put over a bare score. We also played a tape of Sun, which Hanson conducted last May, and of Berio's Sinfonia. Lenny's working on a large-scale religious piece about which he didn't talk much. At two his daughter returned from a date, thus ending the evening for us all.
